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)
Dark red with ruby tones. Superripe yet pungent aromas of crushed cherry, spices and minerals; hints at exotic fruits but there's nothing cooked or tired here. Then silky, highly concentrated and creamy-sweet in the mouth, with surprising acidity giving its fruit a rare sappiness for 2015. Most spectacular today on the explosive, building finish, which saturates the palate with fresh cherry, raspberry and rose petal perfume. This wine made me shiver with its intensity, but Arnaud Mortet believes it's starting to shut down in the bottle. A remarkable Gevrey premier cru from vines that are now between 70 and 100 years of age. (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+
