The 2016 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru comes from the Domaine’s 0.22-hectare parcel in Ruchottes de Dessus, just below the cabotte. It is matured in 50% new oak. There is fine intensity on the nose here: blackberry, raspberry, orange pith and a light mineral presence that will hopefully become more expressive once in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, silky smooth in texture with tightly wound red cherry, white pepper and light mineral notes that become more conspicuous towards the detailed finish. This is certainly a fine Ruchottes-Chambertin although something tells me that there is even better to come. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2018)
