The 2015 Chiroubles “les Gatilles” from Château de Javernand is a very good example of this buxom vintage, with plenty of black fruit, good soil signature and a broad-shouldered structural chassis that should carry it well into the future. The excellent bouquet offers up scents of black cherries, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, dark soil tones and plenty of violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite sappy at the core, with ripe, fairly firm tannins (particularly for Chiroubles!), fine focus and grip and a very long, wellbalanced and cool finish. There is no signs of sur maturité here, but the wine is quite structured for young Chiroubles and could do with a few years in the cellar to blossom. This is a fine bottle of Chiroubles in the making, which, in structural terms, really wants to be a Morgon! 2020-2040.
Deep ruby. Deeply perfumed cherry and dark berry scents on the intensely perfumed nose. Plush, round and sappy, offering ripe boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Nicely concentrated and velvety in texture, revealing no rough edges. Finishes smooth, gently tannic and long, leaving behind intense blue fruit and spicecake notes. (JR)
