With scented red cherry fruits on the nose, on the palate it is a fine example of the appellation. Very Pinot in character, but this has a sense of intensity and structure. Full in the mouth, layered and textured and the finish is one of long, sweet berry fruits. Extremely appealing.
Reduction dominates the fruit today and about all that can be discerned is a hint of the sauvage. Otherwise there is good intensity and acceptable density to the attractively textured flavors that also culminate in slightly clipped, dry and short finish. Drink 2023+
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.
