The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, which is a mix of Mazoyères and Charmes, has a delightful bouquet that needed little encouragement from the glass, with heavenly aromas of raspberry, crushed strawberry, ground stone verging on slate, perhaps more Mazoyères than Charmes (which is no surprise given that two-thirds of the vines are from that side of the grand cru). The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity, with a lighter finish than I expected, maybe needing a little more substance to develop with time. I am sure it will.

Elegant and dense, with cherry, iron, stone and spice flavors fused to firm, dusty tannins. The fruit is locked up tight, revealing potential on the long, fruit- and spice-filled aftertaste.
