93 Points

The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru is showing very well, wafting from the glass with an already expressive bouquet of wild berries, warm spices, peonies and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with a velvety attack, ripe but racy acids, powdery tannins and a long, penetrating finish. The marriage between Latricières's tensile tendencies and the inherently open-knit, supple profile of the vintage make for a charming, precious rendition of this routinely superb cuvée, and it can already be approached with immense pleasure.
