Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 85 points

  • Ripe strawberries with almost sweet grassy notes. Attractive supple palate. Moreish type of burg. Not overdone and hitting the right notes for a village. Not as much florals as I would imagine but 03 was difficult

  • Burgundies - 2004, 2007 and other "Off" vintages (Giant Garoupa Restaurant): Blinded, this was about as clear a 2003 as you can imagine, but it was nevertheless a pretty good wine. The nose showed all the signs of a hot vintage, with lots of cooked red-fruit aromas, from roasted cherries to stewed plums, along with a curl of smoke and a hint of dried flowers aromas. Quite a nice nose, but rather more masculine and less perfumed than I would have imagine from a Chambolle. The palate too bore the marks of the vintage, with a rich attack showing sappy flavours of cooked cherries and plums, but it was also laced with surprising amount of acidity and a supple structure. Very enjoyable actually, if just a little rough and ripe around the edges for a Chambolle. It had a good, strong finish too, with a touch of cherry liquer, and more masculine notes of meat and spice. Altogether a pretty nice wine, and I do think it will continue to improve with a few more years in the bottle.

  • More New World Pinot in delineation and vibe than Chambolle. That said, a very eager to please wine with lush fruit (not the '03 torqued notes) and a nice harmony.
