An underlying stony mineral element meets cherry, raspberry, blueberry and leafy tobacco accents in this taut red, which gains elegance and silkiness with air, while the aftertaste is long and fine. Best from 2020 through 2036.—
An impressively layered and overtly floral nose is comprised by notes of dark pinot fruit, forest floor and earth. There is a lovely sense of energy to the rich, round and naturally sweet medium weight flavors that possess excellent intensity while retaining very good precision despite the solid richness and volume. Like several wines in the range, this elegant Gevrey 1er should drink well young.
(25% vendange entier; 45% new oak): Bright, dark red-ruby. Captivating aromas of dark raspberry, smoky soil tones and salty minerality, plus a suggestion of graphite. Wonderfully deep, plush wine with complex flavors of raspberry and saline minerality accented by peppery herbs. This energetic, finely balanced wine finishes with lively tannins and palate-staining fruit. Technical directly Jerome Flous finds it more salty and tannic than usual but the finish offers compelling perfume. The upper portion of this vineyard, situated on pure stone, was replanted in 2005, while the lower part features 50-to-60-year-old vines on deeper soil. The two components are like two different wines, notes Flous.
