"Situated about 10 Km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the finest viticultural villages of the Côte de Nuits. In 1847 Gevrey-Chambertin was the first village of the Côte d'Or to join the village name with that of one of its Grand Crus - hence 'Gevrey-en-Montagne' became 'Gevrey-Chambertin. Planted only with Pinot Noir, here one finds the complete hierarchy of the Burgundian appellations: to the north, the premiers crus and to the south the grand crus. The village appellations are gathered on the bottom of the slope. The sparse and pebbly limestone-rich brown-red soils give Gevrey-Chambertin wines power and body. A great Côte de Nuits classic!
Our Gevrey-Chambertin reveals aromas of lightly-wooded blackcurrant. On the palate blackcurrant and liquorice blend beautifully and are accompanied by a slight peppery finish, enhanced by silky tannins.
Have it with hare stew, venison and mature cheeses."

"An impressive Gevrey-Chambertin that has so much fruity charm and the gentle tannins underline this very nicely. Thankfully, no attempt was made to make some kind of bold statement. Quite dry finish, but this helps to give the wine vitality. Drink or hold."

"This is quite ripe yet manages to retain reasonable freshness on the earthy and sauvage-inflected aromas of cassis and plum liqueur. There is very good vibrancy and detail to the delicious medium weight flavors that exhibit mild warmth on the moderately rustic and persistent finale. This will need at least a few years of patience."
