Chambertin, produced from vines planted on gentle slopes, is the grand seigneur of Burgundy wines and Napoleon's favourite. The soil contains limestone and is rich in ferruginous marls. Full-bodied, sappy, rich-flavoured yet supple, this wine develops a highly-complex aroma. Its bright, deep ruby-red colour is a delight to the eye. The fragrances are both powerful and distinguished. As a young wine, it evokes dark cherry, liquorice and truffle. After about fifteen years of maturing it develops notes of leather and candied fruit.
