This is also agreeably fresh, cool and earthy with slightly riper aromas of both red and dark berry fruit that are laced with notes of humus and forest floor. There is good vibrancy to the well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess relatively refined tannins on the balanced and persistent finish. An elegant villages. Drink 2017+
Domaine Jean et Jean-Louis Trapet
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.
