Jacques Prieur Chambertin Grand Cru 2009



Complex, soil-inflected aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, mocha, smoke, dried rose, licorice and menthol. Silky and rather delicate for Chambertin, with exotic cherry liqueur and raspberry flavors lifted by spices and complicated by a saline element. The very long finish features suave tannins and strong stony minerality. Lovely understated Chambertin with the balance to age well.
