BERTAGNA 2005 CHAMBERTIN

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "From the upper reaches of this cru, a 2005 Chambertin displays fresh and tart red raspberry aromas and flavors with overtones of black tea and pungent citrus rind and a distinct note of new wood. Fine-grained but abundant tannin appears to give more support than the relatively fresh, crisp-edged fruit really needs or wants. Suggestions of brothy meatiness mingle with red fruits in a long but relatively simple finish. I hope this is just suffering the effects of recent assemblage. Christophe Vial has move here from de Montille to become the cellarmaster, but oenologist Claire Forestier was responsible for these 2005s. I hope I shall prove to have hit them on a bad day. But abstracting from possible (in some instances obvious) effects of having just been racked to tank and sulfured in preparation for bottling, I found many of these wines lacking in striking personalities or grip. Some evinced toasty hints of barrel despite the percentage of new wood being low (only rising above 20-30% in the case of Chambertin) suggesting that they might be a bit “underwined.”"
