The deeper colour on this vintage stands out alongside that open and perfumed, rose petal and red fruit nose. More guts to this than in 2019 with bags of red fruit to chew on and a little more grainy and textured feel to that classic Chambolle chocolate note. There’s a striking balance and poise here that bodes so well for the bigger wines to come. There’s no doubting that Justine has class. This will be a beauty in 2 or 3 years. 2024 to 2030
Producer Information: Christian Clerget
The first time I met Christian he was in a hurry to catch a plane to Nepal and climb the 7th or 8th highest peak in the world. Fortunately his wife Isabelle and daughter Justine are equal parts
of a wonderful family who strive to express what their vineyards offer. As Christian says, ‘don’t try to cheat the vines’.
Justine is in charge now though and starting to make her mark. She is forging ahead with biodynamics and using whole bunch fermentation for almost a third of the harvest.
