Full-bodied and vibrant, this unfurls in the glass to exhibit a seriously expressive bouquet of cherries, dark chocolate, and forest floor. The palate is saturated, voluminous and layered with succulent fruit, game and toast. Plenty of complexity to keep the drinker entirely engaged through all the twists and turns, this is a well-plotted Pinot Noir that wants to sit a few years in your library before you dive in.
Tasted from bottle, the 2016 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing very well indeed, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of cherries, dark chocolate, forest floor, raw cocoa and wild plums. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and vibrant, with a deep core of succulent fruit, fine-boned and chalky structuring tannins and a long, energetic finish.
