Limpid and brilliant, the Domaine's Chapelle-Chambertin has a woody vanilla nose with a slight floral touch. On the palate, its controlled and subtle tannins ensure elegance, subtlety and a majestic quality and its aromatic subtlety suggests fruit, spices and wood. Its pure features convey plenty of style. The tannins are tender and supple. However, we are brought back to order by its complexity and mineral liveliness on the finish. Food Match: Chapelle-Chambertin goes well with a haunch of venison, a deer fillet with boletus mushrooms or a woodcock with chestnuts.

Wine SpectatorA broad, fruity style, this exhibits black cherry, violet, crushed stone and spice aromas and flavors. Features a firm grip of tannins, with a beam of acidity and a long, sweet finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 8 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a noticeable dark colour. There is plenty of dark cherry and black plum fruit on the nose, quite fresh with violet scents developing with aeration, though not a complex bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with quite fine tannin and well judged acidity. It is a linear Chapelle-Chambertin, a "correct" grand cru with a straightlaced finish that needs just a little more persistence.
