Lot #269. Cecile Tremblay Chapelle-Chambertin 2005

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 JG.
"I have had some lovely old Chapelles from Domaine Trapet from their golden age, and I was extremely excited to have an opportunity to taste Cécile Tremblay’s example of this underrated vineyard. Her vines are a lovely fifty years of age in Chapelle, and she has used thirty percent new oak for the elevage of this wine in 2005. The wine is also beautifully perfumed, as it delivers notes of black cherries, red plums, dusty rose, cocoa powder, blood orange, a lovely base of soil and just a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is medium-full, suave and intensely flavored, with a juicy kernel of fruit at the core, great elegance, bright acids, very supple tannins, and great grip on the long, velvety and utterly refined finish. Again, this is not a blockbuster in terms of weight, but there is no shortage of intensity here, and it has the flawless balance to age with tremendous grace. I wish more young vignerons were making wines like this. A very sophisticated bottle." John Gilman, View From The Cellar, Dec 2006
Provenance: The Montagneux Cellar
Notes: 2 Lightly wrinkled capsules, 2 lightly scuffed label.
