Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Beaune-Champs-Pimont-1er-Cru-2016

Clos de la Chapelle, Beaune ''Champs Pimont'' 1er Cru, 2016

“The 2016 Champs Pimont is outstanding, wafting from the glass in a fine aromatic blend of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, gamebird, a lovely base of soil, a hint of cedar and a topnote of fresh thyme. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a sappy core, lovely soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a long, complex and tangy finish. Superb Beaune premier cru! 2025-2060.”
- John Gilman (91+ points)

“The 2016 Beaune Champimont 1er Cru offers simple red cherry and strawberry on the quite succulent nose. The palate is fresh and crisp, yet overall it just needs more substance on the finish. Drink over the next four or five years.”
