Joseph Roty Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes 2010

Joseph Roty Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes 2010


96+ points Vinous: “Full, saturated medium ruby. Superb nuance and lift to the aromas of kirsch , violet, licorice pastille and crushed stone. Wonderfully sappy and alive in the mouth, with outstanding energy and tension to its dark fruit, floral and minerals flavors. Conveys a powerful impression of dry extract, not to mention an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity. Noble tannins coat every square millimeter of the palate on the building, vibrant aftertaste. A great vintage for this consistently outstanding bottling: this may yet merit an even higher score 12 or 15 years down the road.”

Joseph Roty will always be remembered as one of the great names of Gevrey Chambertin. In a village where there is no shortage of talented, dedicated vignerons, Roty’s name goes at the top of the list along with Charles Rousseau. Following his passing in 2008, the domaine has since been operated by his talented son Philippe, who seamlessly adopted the methods of his father’s winemaking.
Roty’s style in most vintages produce deep wines that start out brooding and austere, but with unmistakable purity, balance and superb expression of terroir. Compared to other finesse and perfumed Burgundies, Roty’s big and darkly-hued wines stand out and will age extremely well - while somewhat larger than life in their early years, they have a tendency to harmoniously synthesize with bottle age, and deliver the best of what Gevrey can offer.
The Roty family has been producing wine in Burgundy since 1710, eleven generations, working the same vineyards for 300 years. Joseph Roty took over the family domaine in 1968 from his grandfather, and added to the family’s holdings over the course of his tenure. The portfolio of wines now contains a number of cuvees that hail from venerable plots of vines.
