2008

Wine Advocate 89-90+: The Bellene 2008 Charmes-Chambertin (from the -true- Charmes) smells of creme de cassis; and resin; offers palate-staining berry concentration and imposing sweetness though also enormous underlying tannin; and finishes with formidable grip but for now not much differentiation or refinement of flavor, and certainly not much charm. This had been racked from its original new barrels to older wood the week I tasted it and thus might have been laboring under a handicap. Certainly the raw material for at least a decade of thriving seems present.

Wine Spectator 93: Starts out with sweet strawberry, cherry and floral aromas and flavours that quickly give way to the lively structure. There's purity, focus and balance, but this needs time for the two halves to come together. Best from 2014 through 2026.
