Tasting Notes:

Jasper Morris: 93-96 Points

There is more limestone in their plot in the northern end of the vineyard in distinction to the Mazoyères-Chambertin though the same technique of 50-60% retained pedicels and 25% new wood has been used. If anything the Charmes is slightly less deep in colour with a fresh nose even some minerals. Then the wine fattens and sweetens to deliver the come-hither gaiety of classical Charmes. Dark strawberry luscious fruit to finish. Drink from 2027-2037.

Vinous: 94-96 Points

The 2021 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru includes 50% whole bunches (pédicelles) and 20% new oak. Plenty of crushed stones on the nose mainly black fruit hints of oyster shell and white pepper. The palate is beautifully balanced with a silky texture sleek and tensile with cracked black pepper and limestone on the finish. Superb.

Burghound: 91-94 Points

A more restrained and more elegant nose features notes of the essence of red pinot fruit anise and a plethora of pretty floral elements. Here too the medium-bodied flavors possess a caressing texture that is finer if less powerful on the youthfully austere balanced and sneaky long finish. This is presently not quite as complex as the Mazoyères but that may well change with time in bottle. (Drink starting 2033)
