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 "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste.
A polished red, this delivers cherry, strawberry, rose and spice aromas and flavors. Balanced and vibrant, ending with a mouthwatering aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2035. 800 cases imported.
Drouhin's 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Village unwinds in the glass with a youthfully reserved nose of dark berry fruit, grilled meats, licorice and bergamot. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with tangy acids, a tight-knit core and powdery structuring tannins. This is a serious Gevrey that will demand and reward bottle age.
