The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux is a blend of four different parcels in the four corners of the vineyard. The vines are between 60 and 100 years old, and suffered a lot of millerandage, therefore Arnaud used 50% whole bunch with 50% new oak during the élevage. It has another extraordinarily pure bouquet with hints of blue fruit tincturing the ebulliant and vibrant red fruit, a floral not emerging with a few swirls of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, impressive weight and structure, offering a subtle oyster shell note towards the finish that gently fans out. Wonderful from start to finish. (NM)
Deep red-ruby. Distinctly rocky, high-pitched scents of black raspberry, spices, flowers and minerals. Very ripe and deep; a step up in concentration from the foregoing wines, with mineral-driven acidity enlivening the flavors of dark berries, crushed rock and dark chocolate. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and an element of salty minerality that contributes to the wine's impression of energy. Outstanding potential here. (ST)
(from 4 separate parcels that total .41 ha; 50% whole cluster). A background application of wood easily allows the notably floral-suffused nose of plum, cherry and earth aromas to shine. The elegant, pure and impressively refined medium weight flavors exhibit a bit more minerality on the balanced, firm and mouth coating finale. This is fine enough to be enjoyed young but has the structure and underlying material to reward extended cellaring if that’s your preference. 2025+
