Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2016 Amiot Servelle Charmes Chambertin Grand cru

This is the northern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. It is home to perhaps the noblest expression of Pinot Noir on planet Earth, if not the noblest expression of any wine on Earth; the minute yet palpable differences from single parcels of land were intuited by Cistercian monks who farmed the 'golden slope' for approximately two thousand years. From Corgoloin in the south, to Marsannay in the north, the finesse and complexity of the wines is at times both hauntingly beautiful and mind boggling. Its most celebrated villages: Nuits St Georges, Vougeot, Flagey Echezeaux, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Gevrey Chambertin, and Morey St Denis.

Price: $229.00

From Mazoyères, vines planted in 1980, a small .19 hectare parcel. WOW. Incredibly deep and sappy, intensely violet, with plenty of drive and focus for all of its richness.
"(from Mazoyères). Moderate wood frames a completely different aromatic profile with its notes of the sauvage, underbrush, humus and wild berry scents. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess both good power and verve while offering very fine complexity and sneaky good length. This is not particularly structured in the context of what is typical for a grand cru and as such should be approachable after only a few years of bottle age yet reward 10 to 12, perhaps even slightly more.
