  • 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.

  • Really enjoyed a case of 6, drank during 2014. Was fully mature.

    Strawberries, violets, mushrooms and smoke on the nose. Strawberries and redcurrants on the palate. Open and mature, but still firm enough to suggest that it will go on drinking well.

    Overall, very true to both the appellation and the vintage, expressing more red fruit than black, and with a strong acidic spine (but not in a bad way).

  • Half bottle. Light red. Tart, brambly nose. Light, sour cherry fruit, good acidity, and fine thread of soil. Good AC Chambolle.

  • 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.
