The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru cannot quite match its "sister", the Chapelle-Chambertin, in terms of precision and energy on the nose, here more conservative as you would expect—more correct and well behaved with its blackberry and raspberry leaf aromas, though there is still fine mineralité. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, notes of cold stone, hints of dried blood tincturing the black fruit with that energy filtering through on the finish. This is composed and utterly charming.

A discreet application of wood frames the even more complex nose of high-toned, cool and airy aromas of red and dark cherry, forest floor, rose petal and spice elements. The sleek, intense and once again highly sophisticated middle weight plus flavors brim with both minerality and dry extract that buffers the even firmer tannic spine shaping the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is relatively succulent for a young Latricières but I suspect that the present inviting mouthfeel will be replaced in short order by something firmer and more austere. In short, this is stunningly good but it is not likely to make for especially inviting early drinking. 2035+

The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has a refined bouquet of pretty, slightly tertiary red berry fruit laced with subtle oyster shell scents. The fresh, vibrant, medium-bodied palate presents fine-grained tannin, crisp acidity and a succinct, mineral-driven, detailed finish that does this grand cru proud. Bon vin!
