2014 Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin: “Powerful, Dense”
This just in from the Wine Spectator: a powerful note for the 2014 Domaine Arlaud Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, a wine that they give an aging window to of nearly 30 years! Now that’s a truly grand cru. IN STOCK!
A powerful, dense version, evoking cherry, currant and spice flavors, with underlying accents of mineral and tobacco. Tight and chalky on the finish, but showing promise. Best from 2020 through 2040.
And here’s some more powerful reviews for 2014 Burgundy from Arlaud:
2014 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Millandes
This is rich and expansive, offering bright cherry, raspberry and earth flavors. Dense, ripe tannins add support, showing fine purity and harmony. This dovetails on the finish from the broader attack. Best from 2019 through 2033.—B.S.
Concentrated and elegant, featuring rose, cherry, spice and light earthy flavors. The acidity keeps this vibrant, with well-mannered tannins adding support. Shows fine length and harmony on the lingering finish. Best from 2018 through 2030.—B.S
