A perfumed, admirably pure and pretty nose is more restrained with its blend of various dark berries, plum, spice and a background hint of violet. The mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is sleeker still with a lovely sense of underlying tension adding lift to the lightly stony and mildly austere finish. This is excellent and very much recommended.
The 2016 Gevrey Chambertin En Champ is clearly a step up in complexity vis-à-vis the Gevrey Villages: more tension, the red fruit augmented by blackberry and a cold stone scent. There is certainly tangible mineralité here, even at this early stage. The palate has a crunchy texture on the entry, just a subtle tang of bitterness and orange peel that interlace the red and black fruit, leading to a very pure and long finish. Beautiful. Don't underestimate this En Champ from Pierre Duroché. (NM)
From a lieu-dit on the Brochon side of Gevrey, the Champ is a fuller, more ample wine than the regular Gevrey villages, with similarly fine-grained tannins and vibrant fruit, and a more brooding bouquet of red and black cherry fruit and spicy, meaty bass notes. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. (WK)
