The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cherbaudes comes from 0.67-hectares of vines planted in 1940. It has a very attractive bouquet with fresh raspberry, Tiptree strawberry jam, light bergamot scents and great delineation. The palate is smooth and silky. This is a more opulent take on the 2012 from Jean-Marie Fourrier, but still well defined with a harmonious, seductive finish adorned with a tang of marmalade on the aftertaste. (NM)
Moderate reduction dominates the nose at present but the cool, reserved and understated medium-bodied flavors possess excellent detail as well as fine richness on the lightly mineral-driven finish. This exudes a fine balance and while the flavor profile is very Gevrey, there is no underlying rusticity. *Outstanding*
Medium red. Very ripe but lively aromas of raspberry and sexy smoky oak. Rich, supple and sweet, with a positive high-toned quality to its plush flavors of raspberry and saline minerality. Serious tannins will need at least a few years to integrate with the wine's fruit but this premier cru already boasts considerable sex appeal. (ST)
The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin Cherbaudes is deep, juicy and expressive. Sweet spices, tobacco and an array of blue/blackish fruit flesh out in a juicy, beautifully expressive wine with considerable early and medium term appeal. This is one of the most polished wines in the range, and is likely to drink well with minimum cellaring. (AG)
Close to Clos de Bèze. Bright cherry red. Smooth, seductive, so so fruity nose. Very rich indeed and seductive. Beautifully polished. Really very glorious. Cool and fresh on the end. Hint of violets. 17.5/20 points.
