Dominique Laurent Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2009
VM95: "True Charmes," says Laurent, from a crop level of 35 hectoliters per hectare) Good bright, deep red. Sexy aromas of red fruits, flowers, bacon fat and smoky oak, with complicating notes of game and underbrush. In a distinctly feminine, lighter style but with insidious soil-driven perfume extending straight through to the very long finish. Wonderfully silky wine.
