No Tasting Note Given.
The 2015 Gevrey villages this year chez Drouhin is also very refined and pure in personality, with a bit more reserved personality than the Vosne AC, but nearly equal potential. This cuvée includes thirty percent premier cru fruit in its blend and offers up a fine bouquet of black cherries, black plums, chocolate, gamebird and dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and fairly fruit-driven in personality (though with purer fruit than in the more roasted Chambolle AC), with a sappy core, fine-grained tannins and lovely focus and grip on the long and youthful finish. This will want a few years in the cellar to blossom. 2020-2045.
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, which contains 20-30% premier cru in the final blend, has a pretty red cherry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet that has commendable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy redcurrant and raspberry fruit on the entry, nicely structured with just a touch of sinew on the licorice-tinged finish. There is certainly commendable substance here for a village cru and it will probably age for longer than people will allow it.(NM)
Medium red. High-pitched scents of cranberry, dark cherry and red rose. Juicy, spicy and quite firm, with its slight leanness and notes of bitter chocolate, menthol and herbs suggesting a wide range of ripeness. Is there enough stuffing for the firm, slightly dusty tannins? Finishes with an impression of medicinal reserve. (ST)
A completely different aromatic profile is present here with its pungently earthy and brooding nose of plum, humus, violet and a touch of forest floor. There is once again a lovely sense of energy to the well-detailed and moderately robust finish that culminates in a lingering and youthfully austere finale. This too is good enough to be worthy of your interest.
