There are eight barrels of Bachelet's superb 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes, a captivating wine that bursts from the glass with expressive aromas of wild berries, orange rind, peonies, sweet spices, dark chocolate and grilled meat. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and layered, with superb depth and energy at the core, satiny structuring tannins and a long, expansive finish. As Bachelet fans will know, this hails from two plots, one planted in 1907 and the other in 1917, so it truly merits its "Vieilles Vignes" designation.

The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is one of the most backward. I can remember tasting this wine from barrel over the last 15-odd years. Patience is needed. It gradually opens to reveal exquisitely defined blackberry, hawthorn and crushed stone aromas, hints of rose petal emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and filigree tannin, perfectly judged acidity, the intensity flooding towards the back end with such effortlessly ease. This is yet another magnificent masterclass in Charmes-Chambertin courtesy of Bachelet and his century-old vines.
