Burgundy - CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE BÈZE, Grand Cru, Pierre Damoy

2008 CHARMES CHAMBERTIN, Grand Cru, Domaine Arlaud. Burgundy

Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Press Reviews: 90/100, Allen Meadows, Burghound
"'This is really quite pretty as the intensely earthy and mild sauvage character adds real complexity to the fresh and layered red Pinot fruit that also has a hint of the vegetal to it. The rich, full-bodied and tautly muscular flavors are delicious, long, complex and balanced and the sauvage character on the nose reappears on the ever-so-slightly edgy finish in the form of a feral quality. This is not a big wine by the standards of the appellation yet there is enough size, weight, volume and focused power to speak clearly of Mazoyères."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Well-concentrated blackberry and dark cherry scent and impressively fill the firm, bright palate of Arlaud’s 2008 Charmes Chambertin. Probably because around half of this wine comes from young vines – whose vinification Arlaud tailors to that limitation – if often seems to lack real grand cru depth. (That they’re situated along the line with Latricieres-Chambertin is certainly encouraging.) Still, I like the refinement of tannins here and there are salty, chalky finishing notes that, allied with brightness of fruit, serve for admirable invigoration and additional interest. Give this a few years in bottle and anticipate up to the better part of a decade’s satisfaction. (DS)"
