The Roty Charmes Chambertin 1996 is a big brute … pure but somewhat old school with more punch than caressses currently. In the bouquet very dense and weighty red and darkberry fruit, hints of soy, sous-bois – and powered by a quite powerful minerality lurking underneath the quite tightly wound fruit. On the palate considerable weight, with layers of fruit – quite atypical for this often edgy and bony vintage. Its a powerhouse – old school Charmes – with a lovely nerve and verve. Is at least 10 years from full maturity … drinkable now – but will be quite magnificent when it’s firing on all cylinders.

- Vineyard Insight: Griotte-Chambertin Griotte-Chambertin has a special place in my Burgundy heart – as it was one of the first Grand Crus I acquired when I began to collect Burgundies around 1990. I adore a good Griotte as it often seems to offer both drinkability and delicate complexity not often found in a Gevrey – aside form the magnificent ...
- WineHog rating system – more than points Tasting and rating wine is not exact science … and therefore I prefer to use a scale that reflects that wine is a living organism and that a wine can taste like 94 points one day … and 93 the next day … depending on the moon, the glass, temperature and or my mood!
