Emmanuel and Frédéric Humbert are the fourth generation of vignerons to tend this six-hectare family estate, which includes some mouth-watering Premier Crus and exquisite Grand Crus. They took over the domaine from their parents in 1989 and since then they have been quietly and steadily improving the quality of the wines produced. Today, they make wines which reflect their dedicated effort and experience of the past twenty or so vintages.
The Humbert’s wines are serious and focused and clearly express the different terroirs. The fruit has an exemplary precision, tending towards the more powerful and solid in the Charmes-Chambertin and Petite Chapelle, and brighter, spicy red-fruits in Poissenots and Estournelles St. Jacques.
Good dark red. Cassis, black cherry and violet scents struck me as almost Cabernet-like. Then plush and sweet in the middle, with the dark berry flavors complicated by violet and bitter chocolate nuances. Shows the added richness of the 2015 vintage, but finishes with a firm tannic spine that will require some time in bottle. - Vinous
