A pungent nose is presently composed by notes of wood and reduction. On the plus side there is good freshness and energy to the bigger and more muscular flavors that also display a lovely mineral streak that extends to the sleek, succulent and slightly longer and more complex finale. This moderately powerful effort is sufficiently firmly structured to observe that it will need at least 5 to 6 years of bottle age first. Outstanding. (90-93)/2025+
The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
