Varoilles Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016
Their Charmes-Chambertin combines the richness of the Clos des Varoilles with the silkiness of neighboring “Romanée.” It comes from a 3/4 hectare plot in Mazoyères directly across from Latricières.
BURGHOUND 93 points: “The rich and impressively powerful big-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm tannic spine on the solidly persistent finish. This borderline rustic effort won’t win any awards for elegance but it certainly doesn’t lack for concentration or character.”
JANCIS ROBINSON: “Smooth, velvet tannins and has plenty of freshness under the (currently) very obvious oak. Needs time for the oak to recede but it has plenty of stuffing to do that.”
