Product Description


Joseph Roty, Charmes Chambertin Tres Vv
Case size:12x75
Region:Burgundy (Red)

The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Très Vieilles Vignes is showing superbly from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet in which notes of blackcurrants, cherries, spiced plums and dark chocolate mingle with nuances of peony, orange rind and grilled meats. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and dense, with a layered and immensely concentrated core that largely conceals the wine's rich structuring tannins, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This Charmes' precision and definition rank it a touch higher than the domaine's 2015, though it would be fascinating to taste the two side-by-side. 2026-2060

The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru has a deep purple color. The bouquet is introverted at first, more like a Mazis-Chambertin, gradually opening with very pure, delineated black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intermingling with wet limestone and blood orange notes. There is wonderful structure here, one that is not common among Charmes-Chambertin, and that can be put down to venerable vine age. There is palpable authority on the finish that demands attention yet also wards you off from opening bottles without 7 or 8 years on the odometer. Stunning. 2025-2060

95-97 points Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

Deep ruby. Brooding, profound aromas and flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, black cherry, licorice and animal fur, complicated by smoky soil tones. Wonderfully thick and dense; primary and backward but not at all hard. Most impressive today on the refined back end, finishing with noble, seamless tannins, intense black cherry and violet lift, and terrific pungent stony minerality. Another stunning wine in the making from a vineyard that was planted in 1882. This Charmes is Chambertin-like in its soil complexity, power and grip.

95-98 points Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

More moderate, though hardly invisible, oak influence can be found on the notably ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum and a panoply of spice and earth elements. The detailed, powerful and punchy imposingly-scaled flavors possess first-rate mid-palate density as the sappy dry extract coats the mouth on the very firmly structured finish that flashes both better depth and persistence. Excellent quality though again note well that this is very serious and will need extended aging. 2036+
