2016 - Domaine Claude Dugat Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru
- 96 WA
The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru had apparently been reduced for a long time so the nose was difficult to read. The palate is more expressive than I was expecting, not a million miles away stylistically from say, Denis Bachelet’s Charmes, armed with vibrant red berry fruit and a welcome touch of spice that lends character to the composed and persistent finish. Good potential but I will not score this while the nose is this reduced.
