Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (43466)

The sauvage-suffused nose reflects a bit more wood on the cool and pure essence of red berry fruit nose that projects plenty of floral, earth, forest floor and anise elements. The rich and muscular medium weight plus flavors display touches of salinity and youthful austerity on the otherwise sneaky long finish. This isn't elegant or especially dense but it is a relatively dense 2017 and one that should age well, indeed it will need most of 20 years to arrive at its apogee.

Vinous - Score: 89-91 (43466)

The 2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, around 85% whole clusters, has a tightly wound, damp earth bouquet that is well defined. The medium-bodied palate is masculine and structured, quite broody and surprisingly introspective. I don’t quite detect the "charm" in this Charmes, but maybe it was just not showing on the day.
