The Chambertin 2009 from Rossignol-Trapet is a mixed bag of goodies. The bouquet is very open, with toasted oak, fine almost airy red berry fruit and a beautiful stony minerality from the mighty Chambertin terroir. On the palate quite lightfooted for a 2009 Grand Cru with a quite cool fruit and a long refined mineralic finish. On the positive side it’s quite nimble and delicate for a 2009 – but it’s also somewhat lighter than one would expect from a Chambertin in a fine vintage. Love the mineralic tension and nerve – it’s very harmonious – but almost too polished. Bottom line – lovely terroir wine but in my view lacking a bit intensity, depth and weight.
