I think this is just into its drinking window but some ways off the peak. No real secondaries yet and it looks pretty youthful too. No real nose either come to think of it. Best is yet to come but I think this is a good premier Cru at best.
Smooth, cherry-laden and with a hint of mushrooms. Like most Charmes, this doesn't have the weight or structure of its neighbours, but is a lovely expression of the terroir nonetheless. This is at its prime, shouldn't be held for much longer though it can evolve for 3-4 more years.

(Potel Nicolas Charmes-Chambertin) Medium-plus cherry-red. Some depth to the fruit on the nose and a low-key meaty note - surprising for such a juvenile. Intense cherry cordial on the palate with balanced acidity and tannins that show just a little rasp at the end.. A one-dimensional but long finish. Very easy to drink and given the balance and intensity you could lose this in the cellar for 10 years - no problem.
