Dance the Quickstep: Burgundy 2020 (Dec 2021)

The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from Mazoyères and contains 100% whole bunch. Very crisp, taut and minerally on the nose, this feels tight, timid at the moment. But certainly there is impressive precision here, wilted rose petal scents emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with dense and grippy tannins. Layer of black fruit, just a slight touch of burnt toast/ash towards the sinewy and white pepper finish. Give this 5-7 years in bottle – it’s a bit brutish at the moment.
