Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, 2008, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux
2008 Latricières-Chambertin: (from a .53 ha parcel).
A trace of new wood sets off very fresh and elegant red berry fruit aromas cut with a distinct stoniness that give way to rich, refined and beautifully detailed medium weight flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration and impeccable balance.
A classic Latricières that displays just a touch of finishing austerity as well as the definite sense of underlying reserve. A great first vintage.
