The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet of dark cherries, raspberry and light tobacco aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is very smooth and harmonious, with lightly spiced red fruit. Gains weight and grip toward the very finely detailed finish, which nudges Premier Cru in quality. Yeah... that good.
Coquard Loison Fleurot
Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot is a family estate with important holdings in Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux, Clos de Vougeot, Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche and Clos Saint Denis. Claire Fleurot represents the latest generation of this family and as commercial director she is taking the domaine to new heights. She has enlisted the help of talented young winemaker Thomas Colladot who has spent time at Domaine Cathiard. The grapes are destemmed and while the wines see some oak, they maintain a signature pure, juicy style. Coquard Loison Fleurot remains fairly unknown outside of France (traditionally the domaine only sold its wine to local supermarkets) but word is spreading… Watch this space.
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.
