Excluding GST: S$204.00
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.
Dark red-ruby. Very dark, floral nose exudes scents of cassis, blackberry, violet and licorice. Juicy and imploded, displaying terrific definition but an extremely primary character to its dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. This very rocky wine from shallow soil is quite youthfully taut today, with its strong oak element currently drying the tannins. But there's outstanding mineral energy here to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. - Vinous
