Joseph Roty, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2001, Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Tasting Note: A red Burgundy with tannin that can stand up to a steak.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of rose petal, red plum, strawberry and red cherry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot noir delivers flavors suggested on the nose with midpalate concentration that opens up over the course of an evening in your glass.
The wine has ripe, medium-plus tannin that can stand up to grilled meats while at the same time being smooth on the palate.
