Pale garnet core, wide pale garnet/mahogany rim. Nose shows cranberry, raspberry, touch of celery, hint of earth but fruit very much still to the fore. Light/medium bodied on the palate, red fruited, elegant, remains light and airy though has put on a touch of weight and has deceptively good depth of fruit, tannins very fine, fresh acidity, some plum fruit coming through on the sneakily persistent finish with a touch of chalky tannin at the tail end. Excellent, drinking well, no hurry.
It's been a while since last tasted (2011). Light translucent red in the glass. Aromas of red cherry, raspberry, some cough syrup. On the palate, this is quite lean and not particularly concentrated; red berries, stone, acid. Not very Chambolle in character -- I would have guessed CdB blind. Average length. Gained a little bit of weight and complexity with some decanter time. Comes off as a 2004/2008 hybrid to me. Not particularly interesting today, not a particularly successful 2007. Unsure if this is going to get any better. I'd recommend decanting future bottles for an hour or two before consuming. Second of six bottles -- I'll be drinking the remainder over the short term.
Layered, deep yet unmistakeably Chambolle nose that is immensely charming. Initially the palate doesn't disappoint either, being relatively plump and silky and then finishing with bracing freshness. However with time the acidity begins to dominate and the overall impression is of a rather thin wine. A showcase for 2007's strengths and weaknesses.
