Had this besides Drouhin 2001 Clos des Chenes. This was more open for the first hour with silky high-toned red fruit. After more air the Drouhin was clearly better. Will drink my next bottle more quickly!
Took about 1.5 hours to show its best. Floral nose of violets and roses with some underlying secondary earthy notes. Palate was satiny texture with a warm medium finish. Pure elegance. Probably would have been more impressive 3-5 years ago, but a nice mature Chambolle now.
Hard to believe this is a 13 year-old villages wine! Started with small red fruits on nose and smooth palate. Was best between 45 and 90 minutes open when nose was even mix of red and black fruits and palate was richer dark fruits. Hint of secondary development showed on nose after 90 minutes.
