Region : Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal : 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes : Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and velvety texture of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste.
Best enjoyed at 16°C. Drink now or cellar up to 20 years.
