Lot #385. Denis Bachelet Charmes-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2013

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 JG.
"Monsieur Bachelet’s very, very old vines in Charmes-Chambertin were actually some of the most generous in terms of yields in his entire lineup this year, as they tend to be a bit self-regulating in most years, so that they did not struggle quite as much during the floraison of 2013 as they did the year previous. This is one of my favorite wines in all of Burgundy year in and year out, and the 2013 is another brilliant wine in the making, as it jumps from the glass in a beautiful blend of black cherries, sweet cassis, grilled meats, coffee bean, a beautifully complex base of dark soil tones and a lovely base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and quite primary out of the blocks, with a particularly soil-driven personality this year, ripe, perfectly-integrated tannins and outstanding length and grip on the focused and tangy finish. A great bottle in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2014, Issue #54
