The red wines have a lively colour that ranges from dark ruby t black cherry. Their aromas recall raspberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants, with notes of fruit kernels, liquorice and spices. Other aromas can also be present such as roses, violets, moss and undergrowth On the palate, power, opulence and elegance combine to create full-bodied, complex, vigorous wines with voluptuous substance, enabling them to age for at least 10 years. While these sumptuous Grands Crus have something of a family resemblance, there are nuances that set them apart.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru is tighter and more laconic on the nose compared to the Griotte, which is usual. With a little encouragement there is just a suggestion of brine, something from the deep dark sea. The palate is fresh and vibrant right from the start with fine tannins, very smooth in the mouth with impressive density and weight. This is a vin de garde for sure, with a lovely touch of white pepper lingering on the aftertaste.
