DESCRIPTION

Cool, ripe and fresh aromas speak of red berry, wet stone and discreet floral hints give way to vibrant, intense, detailed and concentrated middle weight flavors that are shaped by phenolically ripe and remarkably fine tannins. The length is impressive and this is a classic Champans of finesse and minerality yet it is very much built-to-age. Recommended.   Burghound 91-93 Sweet Spot Outstanding!

Note: from vines that average 50 years of age

Producer note: Jean-Pierre Charlot described 2015 quite simply by observing that "everything was easy basically from start to finish. The season was hot and dry with basically no disease pressure to speak of, which means that we made many fewer treatments and other than the vines suffering from a bit of hydric stress in July, it was pretty much stress-free. I chose to begin picking on the 5th of September and the fruit was incredibly clean. We sorted but in the end if we threw out 1% of the crop I would be surprised. Moreover the fruit was exceptionally ripe without being roasted and for the first time in my career, and I've been doing this for a very long time now, I didn't chaptalize even one cuvée. The vinifications were easy as well as there wasn't much to do except watch as the colors and extractions basically happened by themselves due to the very thick skins. When you consider everything together, which is to say vineyard work, harvest and vinification, 2015 is about as easy a vintage as I can imagine having." Not surprisingly the results are consistent with Charlot's comments as the wines reflect the absence of problems as they are excellent.
