Xavier Loriot’s 0.16-hectare parcel yielded a mere two barrels in 2016, but two barrels of
Chambertin are worth a lot of money these days. This is a sinewy, well-structured red with
quite a bit of oak at the moment, subtle clove spice, fine tannins and the chalky vivacity and
fruit concentration of the Grand Cru. 2028-36.

(from a .16 ha parcel). A spicy, pure, cool and reserved nose blends highly complex aromas of dark currant, violet, lavender, earth and game, all of which is trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is once again an overt muscularity and unabashed power to the broad-shouldered and concentrated flavors that terminate in an austere, palate staining and strikingly persistent finish that is very firmly structured. This beauty is really quite well-balanced as the only nit is a very mild hint of warmth but like the Rugiens, it would be pointless to open a bottle before at least 10 years have gone by. 95/2036+
