Chambolle Musigny Charmes Bertheau 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is more restrained if not inexpressive with ultra pure and airy red pinot fruit and a hint of spice that also can be found on the precise, round and seductive middle weight flavors that are long and complex and this too is very much crafted in the archetypical style of a classic Chambolle...90-92" BH 01/10 "The Bertheaus’ sole wine of its vintage not bottled by February – on account of certain barrels having been late to complete malo – their 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes displays fascinating and alluring aromas of kirsch, pistachio oil, marzipan, iris, and maraschino. Bright cherry fruit and persistently floral and distillate-like high tones inform a refreshing palate, finishing with saline savor and fruit pit piquancy. This is lightweight, but quite refined, complex, and at least incipiently – allowing for my having tasted it while on its finings and texturally off-kilter – elegant. I would expect plenty of distinctive satisfaction over the next 6-8 years at least...89-90" WA 06/10
