This Gevrey is full of crunchy red berries – cranberries and strawberries. It has a little more tannic structure than the village Chambolle Musigny, as is to be expected from this village. Punchy tannins sustain the palate to a simple but satisfying finish.
Unusually for a Ponsot wine there is a touch of menthol present on the more deeply pitched aromas of underbrush, warm earth, the sauvage and dark currant aromas. There is both fine definition and underlying tension to the delicious and attractively textured flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the dusty and youthfully austere finale. This is also quite good for its appellation and worth considering. Outstanding. 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.
