7 notes


2007 Chapuis Maurice, Savigny-lès-BeauneOct. 2010
Medium colour. High-toned red, slightly spicy nose. Actually quite structured for an 07 and far from simple. Good mineral length.
2008 Chapuis Maurice, Aloxe-CortonOct. 2010
Fresh, fine red berry and currant nose. Good power offsets the acidity, considerable though it is. The underlying tannin is well masked.
2007 Chapuis Maurice, Aloxe-Corton 1erOct. 2010
High-toned, faintly estery fruit. Nice padding and very pretty fruit. An understated wine – just like the length.
2007 Chapuis Maurice, Corton LanguettesOct. 2010
The nose is a little closed, only a few red fruits escape the glass. Fine tannin and a hint of cream. Lovely length. A very elegant Corton.
2007 Chapuis Maurice, Corton PerrièresOct. 2010
The nose isn’t super-wide, but it shows a lovely, detailed depth. More power and structure, but it’s very well covered structure. A good burst of extra complexity in the mid-palate before the mineral finish. Very nice wine.
2008 Chapuis Maurice, Chorey-lès-BeauneOct. 2010
Blanc. Savoury aromas. Wide and mouth-filling. This seems quite full but without becoming heavy. Good length and a relative bargain.
2008 Chapuis Maurice, Corton-CharlemagneOct. 2010
Again slightly savoury aromas. Full and quite fat – the acidity is quite late to show itself, despite that your mouth waters in the finish – and it’s a long mineral finish.
