External Reviews for Roty Joseph Charmes Chambertin

External Review
09/12/2007

This wine is stunning with deep, rich, concentrated, black fruit flavors, gobs of spicy new oak, and a style that someone will certainly say lacks subtlety and finesse. If that is true, this wine clearly compensates with a blast of rich berry fruit and oak. I have always preferred the Charmes-Chambertin to Roty's Mazis-Chambertin. In 1988, the Charmes seems to be the better of the two wines, although they are strikingly similar. The Charmes has a softer texture and a flamboyant and dramatic, rich berry fruitiness backed up by spicy, new oak, full body, and plenty of soft tannin in the finish. It is cunningly and deceptively delicious to drink now, but given its depth and balance, it should last for 10-12 years, perhaps longer.
