Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Chapelle-Chambertin 2011 from Rossignol-Trapet has a more reserved bouquet than Cecile Trembay’s, the fruit blacker, with hints of licorice developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with quite fine tannins and a keen thread of acidity, although there is bluntness on the finish, as if the fruit is whipped away before I’m ready.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2029
Pale to mid cherry. Sweet red fruit, firm and more savoury on the palate. Rounded, relatively rich and dense, but lively too. (JH)
