WA 89-91 "The 2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru includes 70% whole bunch and 80% new oak in order to "stretch the wine" according to Thibault. It comes from purchased grapes. The whole bunch component is neatly assimilated into the nose so that it actually seems fully de-stemmed. There is fine purity here, perfumed red cherries mixed with raspberry preserve. The palate is medium-bodied with quite grippy tannin, quite firm in the mouth and I feel it needs a little more "flow" towards the finish. I just wonder whether that 80% new oak was a prudent move, because for me it just clips the final half of the wine. The jury here is out for the time being... (NM)" (12/2016)
