The 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is slightly deeper in color than the Charmes-Chambertin at this early stage. It already offers crystalline red cherry and strawberry fruit that I hope will be in situ once in bottle. The fruit is a little darker, an equal mixture of red and black fruit flavors. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip. There is clearly good extract here, and it concludes with a masculine, foursquare, slightly chalky finish that suggests it will require several years in bottle. This is very fine.
