"18.5/20 – Jancis Robinson MW91-93/100 – Neal Martin, eRobertParker.comThe Grand Cru of Gevrey Chambertin can develop into the richest, most complete and long-lived Pinot Noir in the world. Charmes and Mazoyères Chambertin are the most pure and seductive of these Grand Cru. Charmes Chambertin is the more dark fruited of the two. Taupenot Merme own 0.57 precious hectares of Grand Cru Charmes Chambertin, crafting one of the finest wines of the Cru.“Four barrels rather than the usual six and a half. Bright crimson. Very bright and fresh. Great interest and freshness. Real lift on the finish. Great sweetness of fruit but very far from sickly. Attractive lightly bitter kick on the end. Real energy here.” Jancis Robinson MW“The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a fresh minty bouquet that is well-defined and vigorous, offering dried rose petals and spice as it unfurls. The palate is crisp on the entry with crisp tannins that underpin what is a linear Charmes-Chambertin that may have closed up a little since November. However there is plenty of matiere on the finish.”Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com"
