*Sweet Spot* There is plenty of the classic Corbeaux sauvage character present on the ultra-fresh and markedly floral nose of spicy and earthy red currant scents. There is excellent size, weight and energy to the muscular yet velvet-textured medium weight flavors that reveals a touch of austerity on the powerful and once again hugely long finale. Note well that this is extremely structured and while well-balanced it's very likely going to need 20 years of cellar to arrive at its full apogee.
Dark ruby-red. Brooding, sauvage nose hints at black fruits and game. Surprisingly round on entry, showing strong torrefaction character, then tightens up toward the back and turns distinctly severe, showing a strong stem element and pronounced oakiness. This powerful, soil-driven wine finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins. In an awkward stage today, not showing the attractive juicy character of the Petite Chapelle. (ST)
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Corbeaux, raised in new oak with 80% whole bunch fruit, has a similar nose to the Petite-Chapelle; perhaps the fruit here veering more to the red side of the spectrum, touches of blood orange surfacing with time. The palate is quite rich on the entry, finer tannins here than the Petite-Chapelle, and more linear though without the same sustain on the aftertaste. It just needs to show more "Pinoté." (NM)
