Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Domaine des Varoilles 2017

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Domaine des Varoilles 2017

Domaine des Varoilles combines a number of spectacular vineyards from village to grand cru level, such as we have here. The arrival of Gilbert Hammel in 1990 marked a turning point for the domaine. Gilbert, of Swiss descent, has made Domaine des Varoilles a go-to producer of a succulent, rounded and supremely approachable style of Gevrey-Chambertin. This is a single 0.8 hectare parcel, opposite fellow grand crus Latricières-Chambertin, on a gentle slope. The grand cru patriarch of the domaine sees 50% new oak, from the Rousseau cooperage.

"2017 was a good year, allying quality, after so many years of low production, to more normal quantities. The reds have a sweet-fruited clarity and perfume which makes them a joy to taste young. We may end up drinking the reds from 2017 before those from 2015 and 2016, but this is by no means a quality assessment: there is ample ageing potential here and a lot of enjoyment for the years to come. Dark forest fruits on the nose, bitter cherry and Asian spices, again with this year’s sweetly fruited signature. The palate is refreshingly light on its feet and driven by a really energetic core of acidity. Great drive and precision, complementing the assuredly poised blackberry and red cherry fruit"
