Chambertin Grand Cru
Lobenberg: 2012, ein Jahr der Katastrophen (Verrieselung und Hagelstürme) in Burgund und zugleich eines der interessantesten und qualitativ herausragendsten Jahre der letzten Jahrzehnte. Mit winzigen Mengen, berstender Frucht, seidigen, ultrafeinen Tanninen, frischer Säure, und vor allem dem Alleinstellungsmerkmal überragender Aromatik. Nur 4 Barriques, ungefähr 60-70 Jahre alte Reben. Erstaunlich, nicht besser aber fokussierter, mittiger als der Clos de Beze, ausgeprägterer Geradeauslauf. Weniger Chambolle, kraftvoller, archetypischer Gevrey Chambertin ausdrückend. Ein vibrierender Wein mit unerhörter Spannung. Extrem lang, komplexeste Kirschfrucht, satte Salz- und Kalksteinspur, grandiose Säure. Ein ganz großer Burgunder. 100/100
-- Parker: The maiden 2012 Chambertin Grand Cru was not easy for Olivier to come by. Here, the vines are 60-years old and it is matured entirely in new oak. It has a very fragrant bouquet with touches of rose petals infusing the red berry fruit that are exquisitely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with quite noticeable wood at the moment. I hope that is absorbed by the time of bottling because there is some lovely fruit here. 93-95/100
-- Burghound: Here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the Bèze save for the fact that the aromas are slightly cooler and more restrained as well as a bit less spicy. There is more minerality to the powerful, intense and beautifully welldelineated medium-bodied plus flavors that possess an abundance of mouth coating dry extract before culminating in an explosive, notably firmer and more persistent finish. This should be terrific in time. 93-95/100 -- Galloni: An addition to the range, the 2012 Chambertin flows across the palate with plenty of Bernstein's signature richness. The 2012 is expressive and enveloping in texture, but more reserved in its aromas and flavors. The Chambertin is also a bigger, broader wine than the Bèze, but a bit less complex and nuanced, at least today. Given Bernstein's success with his other vineyards, it will be interesting to see what he does with this fruit going forward. 93-95/100 -- IWC: Yes, Olivier Bernstein has added four barrels of the king of wines to his collection of crus in 2012 and 2013. Good bright, dark red. Discreet aromas of wild dark berries and iron. Thick, large-scaled, dry and utterly backward. In a distinctly masculine, soil-inflected style, with its silky texture leading to a seriously sappy finish featuring big, chewy tannins and outstanding saline, juicy persistence. This will need extended cellaring. 94-97/100
