The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin les Seuvrées comes from vines that tend to produce small berries and includes 20-25% whole bunch fruit this year. It has a very seductive redcurrant and pomegranate-scented bouquet with a tangible underlying mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-integrated new oak (20%) with a harmonious, slightly chalky finish that lingers in the mouth. This is very fine.(NM)
(these vines range in age from 50 to 60 years old; 20% vendange entier): Bright dark red. Pure but subdued scents of cranberry and stony minerality; shows the lift provided by active calcaire. Dense and sappy on the palate, with a spicy accent to the red and darker berry flavors. A note of medicinal cherry emerged with aeration. This youthful wine finishes with suave tannins. Should make a terrific village wine.(ST)
Like the straight Gevrey villages the nose lacks a bit of freshness but there is good complexity to the dark pinot fruit, earth, game and underbrush-inflected aromas. There is fine volume, richness and density to the relatively powerful, dusty, serious and well-balanced finish where the supporting tannins are clearly riper. Once again my range offers the benefit of the doubt that this will recover its freshness and verve as the underlying material appears to be excellent.
The Gevrey-Chambertin “les Seuvrées” bottling is another new cuvée in the lineup, which hails from a very well-situated lieu à dit just below Mazoyrès-Chambertin. These vines were planted in the 1950s and 1960s and are now in a very good place. The 2015 included twenty-five percent whole clusters this year and offers up a deep and sappy nose of red and black cherries, dark soil tones, mustard seed, hints of the grilled meat to come, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with lovely sappiness at the core, fine focus and soil signature and a nice sense of reserve on the very long and ripely tannic finish. A fine new addition! 2023-2065.
