2014 Domaine Frédéric Esmonin Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru

SKU #1505727 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (these vines are almost 60 years old):Healthy bright ruby-red; the darkest of these '14s. Expressive, deep nose offers scents of boysenberry, violet, wild spices and meat. Very concentrated and dense but weightless, conveying an attractive restrained sweetness and a slightly honeyed character to the flavors of dark berries, minerals and meat. Precise but not at all hard, with big but pliant tannins arriving late. Some Pinot Beurrot in this parcel gives the wine an added measure of gras, notes Frédéric Esmonin. Clearly the pick of the litter in 2014. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is also noticeably restrained with its cool nose of truffle, spice, plum and earth, all of which is trimmed in a deft touch of wood. There is both good volume and intensity to the even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension before terminating in a dusty and long if not quite as well-balanced finale due to a touch of dryness that I ascribe to the recent bottling. As such my score offers the benefit of the doubt. Inner quote mark (1/2016)
