Community Tasting Notes 3
November 9, 2014 - PnP, then drunk over three days.
Medium deep ruby, with purple hues, clear.
Some oak at first, not too much. Fine red fruit (cherries, raspberries), later some smokiness. 2nd and 3rd day, much better, more on red fruit, with earthy tones and some spices, forest leaves.
On the palate I found it a bit heavy and grumpy on the first day, with the presence of oak perceived clearly. Better on day two, lighter, juicier, more drinkable. Finish on blood oranges. Nicely mineral, gains some complexity. Tannins are grainy and a bit drying. Needs time, serious.
September 23, 2014 - Immediately giving and expressive with an aroma of wild cherry, violets, pommegranite and rose petals. The fruit is ripe, lush and creamy in the mouth and there is good underlying minerality. It is quintessential young Chambolle... cool, perfumed, structured and detailed. There's just a hint of meat and a little extractive bitterness to the finish (not a fault in my book as it adds real freshness to the wine).
