The 2002 Charmes Chambertin from Joseph Roty is not showing well at the moment. In the bouquet rich polished dark and red berry aromas with some very ripe notes of plum and prune. On the palate quite open and accessible, with a dense and sweet fruit for the vintage. It’s a quite big wine, with good midpalate concentration and a long quite intense finish. There are however two problems, firstly it’s very polished with only little charm and terroir expression, secondly some of the fruit notes seem very ripe – almost 2003 like. Bottom line – not a bad wine, but not singing either. Could be in a difficult stage – but it’s hard to see this wine merrit a high rating. Fine but somewhat disappointing.

- Vineyard Insight: Griotte-ChambertinGriotte-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 pointsMy aim with the Winehog is unchanged, but I have for some time wanted a stronger focus on the hedonistic pleasure and simple enjoyment of drinking Burgundies. I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
