Two parcels of very old vines - one in the En La Chapelle climat, the other in Les Gémeaux - supply the fruit for this spicy, herbal, dark-fruited Chapelle-Chambertin from a site with very little topsoil. Grassy and spicy, it's a wine that has plenty of backbone and the tannins to age. Unusually well structured for a wine from below the Route des Grands Crus, this is a Gevrey to tuck away in your cellar for a while. (Drink between 2023-2033)

The 2018 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a more feminine and elegant bouquet than the Latricières, offering pure red berry fruit, pressed rose petals and light sous-bois notes, all very precise. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a superb line of acidity, good cohesion and more precision than the Latricières toward the wonderfully persistent finish. This should age with style. (Drink between 2022-2045)

A beguiling nose is composed by liqueur-like aromas of various red berries that display top notes of lavender and spice. The medium weight plus flavors possess a mid-palate that combines power with refinement that contrasts with a wonderfully long and very firm if slightly raspy and youthfully austere finish. This graceful effort also will need a few years to unwind and better harmonize but like the Latricières, it seems quite promising. (Drink starting 2036)
