Excluding GST: S$218.00
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.
Healthy dark red. Musky, complex, soil-driven scents of black cherry, smoke and underbrush. Suave and fine-grained, showing a sweet chocolatey note along with very good energy. Finishes horizontal and long, with noteworthy finesse to its tannins and subtle sucrosité. Humbert compares this wine to Chambolle. - Vinous
Vinous: (90-92)/100 (2015 vintage)
