Reviews/Information
"96 out of 100 - Fashioned from a parcel located in the heart of its grand cru (mostly from 25-year old vines though Raphet asserts that `there are still some very old ones`), the 2003 Charmes-Chambertin Cuvee Unique explodes with red fruit aromas. Sappy, bursting with red cherries, this is a sensual wine made for hedonists. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, it has serious depth of fruit, loads of smile-inducing spices and an exceptionally long, supple finish filled with superbly ripened tannin. Drink it over the next 11-14 years (incidentally, I served the 1996 at this year’s International Pinot Noir Celebration’s salmon bake in Oregon and it was terrific, wowing all who drank it.)" - Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate
