Lot #224. Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin 2009

Description: Consists of 4 Half Bottles, 0.375L
Score: 91-94 AM.
Here the cool and only moderately ripe nose is somewhat atypical for the vintage as it combines notes of raspberry, plum and sour cherry. The supple and delicious flavors are lacy to the point of being almost delicate yet there is focused power on the mouth coating finish. The tannins possess a dusty character and unlike the Combottes, there is excellent complexity and flat out stunning length delivered in a style that emphasizes finesse. Fans of power and weight will wish to look elsewhere but for those who enjoy elegance, this is a textbook example of what I call power without weight. Allen Meadows, Jan 01, 2011
