Within the Cotes du Nuits district in Burgundy, Domaine Frederic Esmonin represents a selection of vineyards in Gevrey-, Mazis- and Ruchottes Chambertin. It is a fairly youthful, independent family business founded in the 1970s by Andre Esmonin and expanded by his son, the eponymous Frederic Esmonin, in 1988.
This is also noticeably restrained with its cool nose of truffle, spice, plum and earth, all of which is trimmed in a deft touch of wood. There is both good volume and intensity to the even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension before terminating in a dusty and long if not quite as well-balanced finale due to a touch of dryness that I ascribe to the recent bottling. As such my score offers the benefit of the doubt.
