Domaine Arnaud Mortet, Charmes Chambertin, Grand Cru 2016

Grape(s)          :  Pinot Noir

Description     :

"Bright dark red, if not especially saturated. Pungent, very pure aromas of raspberry, crushed stone and rose petal: a real essence of le vrai Charmes. Juicy, fine-grained and penetrating, combining excellent density with an impression of weightlessness in a way that very few Pinot Noirs made outside Burgundy can accomplish. Brisk rose petal and red licorice flavors contribute to the impression of sharp definition. A very classy, feminine, youthfully imploded style of Charmes with terrific finishing cut and grip. Finishes with very suave tannins and sneaky rising length. Showing brilliantly today." -Vinous'92-95
