2005 Gerard Raphet Charmes-Chambertin Cote de Nuits France
$169.99 USD $189.99 USD
An almost surprisingly open and accessible aromatic profile of ripe dark berry and black cherry fruit aromas merge into rich, full and very generous sweet and textured medium full-bodied flavors that possess plenty of punch. While presently very approachable, there is a firm core of buried tannins that will probably cause this to close up once in bottle.
