Good dark red. Sweet, complex aromas of raspberry, minerals, spices and faded rose. Sexy and fine-grained in the mouth, with sweet flavors of kirsch, violet and minerals. Sappy, expressive wine with terrific intensity and lovely length. This has real finesse.
Robert Parker 92-93
The 2005 Charmes-Chambertin gives a quite raw, carnal and fresh-fruited account of itself, offering plenty of fresh, ripe cherry and strawberry as well. The tannins here are very fine-grained and a silky textural sensation is emerging. Hints of black tea and herbal distillates hover persistently, and the finish is long, juicy and especially bright.
