"Tasted at the Denis Mortet Chambertin vertical, the 2006 Chambertin Grand Cru put in a respectable showing, especially considering that this was the first vintage that Arnaud Mortet had to oversee himself following the death of his father. It has a pastille-like purity on the nose with bing cherry, cassis and a touch of crushed violet. It is quite backward considering that it is ten-years-old. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet black cherry and raspberry coulis-tinged entry, a little extracted in style, primal and almost bolshie in temperament. Give this 2-3 years and it may harmonize and gain a little more delineation. Tasted January 2016." WA 91
