Chambertin Grand Cru Jacques Prieur 2015 (750ML)
91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru does not include any whole bunch this year, but does include vines in Clos-de-Bèze. It matured in 70% new oak. It has a velvety smooth bouquet that is very seductive: black cherries, creme de cassis and iodine aromas that unfurl from the glass. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe tannin. This is very juicy with very good weight in the mouth, although I would like to see more precision and terroir expression develop on the finish." 12/16
94 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Good dark red. Less showy initially than the young-vines cuvée but ultimately far more complex, offering subtle scents of black raspberry, currant, graphite, smoke, soil and spices. Airy and elegant but at the same time very intensely flavored and subtly thick, with its dark berry, smoke and mineral flavors nicely framed by well-integrated acidity. The very long, slowly building finish features a copacetic combination of sweetness and ripe tannins. Made from 60-year-old vines, this wine is lower in octane and better balanced than the Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru; winemaker Nadine Gublin noted that the clone the estate used to replant its Chambertin vines routinely gives more alcohol." 01/18
89-92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "Here the nose is similar to that of the Gevrey 1er save for being just a touch fresher. There is also a bit better energy to the bigger-bodied and richer flavors that are also exceptionally ripe yet manage to retain slightly better balance on the noticeably warm and mocha-inflected finish. This is impressive in its fashion but it's almost too much of a good thing." #66 04/17
