Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 93

"Denis Bachelet’s 2007 Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is lovely, bursting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of creamy wild berries, wood smoke, rich soil and a classy framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is ample, generous and quite structurally open-knit, with a cool core of fruit, a textural attack and sneaky persistence on the finish. Like many of even the top 2007s, this can already be approached with pleasure." [William Kelley, 31/01/2018]

Vinous 93

Good deep red-ruby. Wild, fully ripe nose combines black cherry, violet and game. Wonderfully sweet and lush in the mouth, conveying an impression of lower acidity than the Corbeaux and village example. This is deceptively pliant, complex and open today but it’s hard to believe it won’t evolve positively in bottle for a decade or more. Finishes juicy, sweet and very long, with an intriguing savory, smoky minerality. This rocky soil really retains heat at night, says Bachelet, which is why the wine often possesses relatively low acidity. [Stephen Tanzer, 03/01/2010]
