Claude Dugat Griotte Chambertin 2011

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Bright, deep red. Very pronounced notes of red cherry, raspberry, flowers and crushed stone. The bouquet is noticeably more floral than the fruit-driven Charmes, or indeed his more austere Chapelle-Chambertin.Wonderfully silky on entry. Medium bodied. Excellent with light meats, roast chicken, and mild cheese.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru offers more volume on the bouquet when compared with the Charmes-Chambertin '11: a slow-motion explosion of raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, subtle notes of ripe (perhaps over-ripe?) oranges and apricot in the background with a balsamic note emerging in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a little more fatness and weight than the Charmes. The acidity is nicely judged here, effortlessly slicing through the pure red and black fruit and segueing into a harmonious, finely-tuned finish that just needs a little more tension. It needs a couple of year in bottle to absorb the new oak, but will be more approachable than other vintages. Drink 2015-2025.
