Lots of power. A little funky on the nose at first. Making transition to secondary. This wine had a great mix of cherry and baking spice. Wonderful Chambolle character. Tasted side by side with 2000. The 2000 was more giving initially, but this wine was much more structured and built to age. This wine has a long road in front of it. I wouldn't open another bottle for a good 5-10 years.
Decanted for a little over an hour. Side by side with the 2000 Vintage. Much darker fruit profile and more structured than the 00. More black cherry than red with berry notes too. Some mild clove and sweet spice notes. Mineral and earth on the nose and palate as well. Long gripping finish. Lots of power. This could use a few more years to soften up and integrate more.
