Domaine des Tilleuls (Philippe Livera), Chapelle-Chambertin Réserve Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru 1993

North Berkeley Imports, Richmond CA.

Twenty five years on.

Carmine.  Wide open and dramatic in its silvery way.  Water crowfoot, red currant and a lapidary minerality consistent with these thinnest soil plots from Gémeux.  Bone-broth sweetness and the body is at once richly vinous and whippet slim.  The finish is lush and expansive and points the way forward.  Now.
