Louis Jadot Chapelle Chambertin 2002
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
Wine AdvocateProduced from 85 year old vines, Jadot's 2002 Chapelle-Chambertin is the finest example of this vineyard I've ever put to my lips. Its awesome aromatics reveal coconut, vanilla, super-ripe blackberries, licorice, and cherries. On the palate, this stunning wine is extraordinarily expansive, conquering the taster with wave after wave of viscous (yet fresh and juicy) black fruits. Medium to full-bodied and seamless, this harmonious, chewy-textured gem lingers on the palate for over a minute. It has power, grace, muscle, and elegance. What more can you ask for? Projected maturity: 2008-2020.
BurghoundNoticeable wood spice frames pretty and pure earthy red fruit that highlights the rich, sappy and elegant medium weight flavors that deliver fine length. This is quite elegant yet altogether serious and blessed with plenty of old vine sap and enough structure to suggest that this will benefit from the better part of a decade in bottle.
