Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, 2013, Domaine Arlaud

Note: from a 1.13 ha parcel in Mazoyères that abuts the Route des Grands Crus

Reduction flattens the fruit. This also possesses a seductive mouth feel thanks to the sleek tannins underpinning the delicious and rich full-bodied flavors that display plenty of punch on the slightly more complex finish that coats the palate with sap.

Though there is a slight touch of finishing rusticity this is more elegant than it usually is.
