Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Dominique Laurent, Burgundy, France, 1996
£40 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price - £285.00
I have chosen to offer you one of the best Pinot Noirs from Burgundy. Dominique Laurent, former pâtissier, started his small business in 1988. He is renowned for offering minuscule quantities (between 25 to 50 cases) of several appellations, all sourced from old vines parcels. He also uses his own made barrels and works with different growers who deliver him their wines, produced very often under his instructions, and will be then aged. This 1996 Charmes-Chambertin is delicate, but well structured with notes of dry violets, chocolate, tobacco and sweet spices. The palate is long and velvety, but retains a great depth and concentration. This wine is an ideal match with our Duo of ‘Jimmy Butler’s’ pork, foie gras, apple and celeriac dish or with a plate of Epoisse cheese.
Please reserve your glass with reception before 7pm on Friday 30th & Saturday 31st January 2015.
