2017 domaine coquard loison fleurot, charmes-chambertin grand cru
Why We're Buying
Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is a textbook fine wine. It has a multi-faceted complexion, fine-grained tannins, and a seemingly limitless aging potential. It should come as no surprise that between 2017 and 2021, this red wine more than doubled in price.
The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Mazoyères, where their parcel is populated by vines planted in 1968 and 1969. The broody bouquet does not disguise that it is Mazoyères, not Charmes, the fruit profile darker than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, a fine bead of acidity and a sinewy style. Don’t be afraid to afford this four to five years in bottle. Very fine. 91-93/100 Neil Martin
