  1. JOSEPH ROTY 2013 CHARMES CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU TRES V.V.

    Item #: i_344311
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 93
    eROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS: "The 2013 Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes has a broody, surprisingly introspective bouquet with raspberry coulis, blackcurrant and sous-bois notes, although to be frank it does not put any gap between itself and the 2013 Gevrey Fontenys. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, not quite as sensual as other Charmes-Chambertins that I have tasted, just a prickle of white pepper towards the finish, but it declines offering that knockout punch on the finish. And as such, pound for pound I prefer the Fontenys this year that seems to possess the same level of complexity."

  2. JOSEPH ROTY 2013 GRIOTTES CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_344313
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    eROBERT PARKER 91-93 POINTS: "The 2013 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru, whose vines lie next to Jean-Marie Fourrier, was showing a little reduction at the beginning, but with aeration it begins to gain more clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, black fruit mixed with cola and five-spice, a crisp line of acidity and a long candied finish. A sumptuous Griotte-Chambertin that will need several years to reach its plateau."

  3. LOUIS JADOT 2013 CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE BEZE GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_334072
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 93-95
    Burghound: 93-96
    BURGHOUND 93-96 POINTS "DONT MISS": "A stunningly spicy nose features notes of anise, sandalwood, exotic tea and lavender nuances that add interest to the cool and pure essence of red currant aromas. There is a lush and enveloping mouth feel to the utterly delicious and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the even more structured and explosive finale. This is a 'wow' wine as I was seriously impressed, not only by its complexity but also by the unrivaled harmony of expression among these Gevrey grands crus."

    eROBERT PARKER 93-95 POINTS: "The 2013 Chambertin Clos-de-Beze Grand Cru has a touch more intensity on the nose when compared directly against the Chambertin '13. It is very well defined and the oak is seamlessly embroidered into the red and black brambly fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin: supple in the mouth with hints of marmalade and Asian spice toward the vibrant finish. Excellent, though the Chambertin has the edge in terms of sophistication."

  4. LOUIS JADOT 2013 CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU

    Item #: i_334074
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 94-96
    Burghound: 92-95
    BURGHOUND 92-95 POINTS "DON'T MISS": "Once again this was not vinified by Jadot. This too is remarkably broad-ranging with its relatively expressive nose of cool red and dark fruit, spice, earth, game, underbrush, floral and exotic tea scented aromas. There is an almost pungent minerality to the overtly powerful and intense big-bodied flavors that exude a controlled power on the imposingly long finish where an interesting hint of tobacco appears. This is impressive though again note well that this will require all of 15 years to arrive at its peak and 18 to 20 would not surprise me."

    eROBERT PARKER 94-96 POINTS: "The 2013 Chambertin Grand Cru has a sense of length and breadth on the nose: delve in to find red and yellow plum, wild strawberry, heather, forest floor and sage aromas that are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, moderate weight in the mouth, but it is more a sense of focus and symmetry that really lifts this Chambertin. Fresh and vibrant with the mineral component becoming accentuated towards the linear finish, this is a Chambertin that will require several years in bottle."
