Chambertin 2015 Jadot
€ 337,59 (incl. BTW)
The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a composed and harmonious, assured bouquet with mineral-driven red berry fruit, a touch of undergrowth and chalk emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite firm tannin. This is a conservative, correct Chambertin with superb structure, real density and assertiveness towards the finish. Will it develop the personality of the Mazis-Chambertin? Still, this represents an impressive Chambertin from Jadot that will give 20-30 years of pleasure.
This too is overtly floral with a breathtaking array of lilac, lavender, rose petal and violet scents adding both breadth and elegance to the array of red currant, plum, spice and forest floor scents. The suave, round and highly seductive broad-shouldered flavors possess superb mid-palate concentration before terminating in a hugely long, sappy and almost painfully intense finish where hints of mocha and warmth can be discerned. This is a serious and youthfully brooding Cham that is also going to require a very long stay in a cold cellar; in short, this is a 'buy and forget' wine.
