The 2016 Chambertin Grand Cru had a late malolactic and a slight reduction on the nose. That said, there are clearly plenty of blackberry, raspberry and tobacco scents waiting to come out. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, quite juicy tannin. This is a Chambertin with impressive body and depth, although this year I find more sophistication embroidered into the Clos de Bèze and maybe even the Chapelle-Chambertin.
