Chambertin is a wine that gives unique sensations, a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas. The hue is deep with an intense ruby colour. Flavours are opulent and earthy. They evoke black cherry, bitter chocolate then liquorice, black truffle and underbrush. With its massive backbone of velvety tannins in near perfect balance, it has great potential for ageing. Dishes accompanying Chambertin should be worthy of this great wine : "Boeuf à la Moëlle" (beef cooked in marrow) for instance, or the famed "Coq au Chambertin". Cowmilk cheeses, duly ripened and served with fresh baked bread, are also recommended.
