Not as open as the Chapelle-Chambertin. Drier and seems leaner at the moment. Nicely balanced in a lighter style but has good length and a firm, refined structure. (JH)

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune, the 2011 Chambertin has a pure bouquet with wild strawberry, cranberry, animal fur and strong sous-bois aromas that are nicely defined, but lend it a feral quality that is intriguing. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp filigree tannins. This is tensile and focused with a sense of energy and poise that revs up on the gorgeous finish and leaves you crying for more. This is a great success for the domaine and is utterly sublime.
