The supremely elegant terroir of Les Goulots (tucked up above Champeaux and contiguous to Combes aux Moines on the Combe de Lavaut) is perfectly suited to the style of the 2005 vintage, and not surprisingly the wine has excelled in this vintage. The nose is a brilliant mélange of candied red and black cherries, a touch of blood orange, cocoa, earth and violets. On the palate the wine is deep, full and sappy, with brilliant focus and balance, a great core, laser-like focus, and great depth on the long, ripely tannic and very tangy finish. This is a stellar bottle of Gevrey premier cru.
This relatively obscure 1er always displays an elegant and upper register nose dominated by cool red fruit aromas and obvious minerality that gives way to fresh and ultra pure middle weight flavors and a detailed, reserved and intense finish where the mineral character is almost pungent. This is a beautiful effort that defines finesse. *Outstanding*
Good red-ruby. Pure, discreet nose offers dark raspberry, brown spices, minerals and game. Juicy, sharply delineated and quite firmly built, with enticing inner-mouth aromatic character and verve. This is dominated by its structure and its slightly spiky tannins today and is currently rather subdued. In fact, I had the impression it was shutting down in the barrel. Fourrier notes that it's in the coldest spot in his cellar. (ST)
From one of Gevrey’s highest and steepest vineyards (north of town between Champeaux and Combes au Moines) comes a 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Goulots displaying aromas of cherry and plum with their pits, savory meatiness, concentrated pit fruits and slightly grainy tannins on the palate, and a gripping finish with deep meatiness, stony mineral suggestions and bitter-sweet fruit. This took a while to open up in the glass and probably hadn’t finished trying to reveal its many facets before I was forced to proceed to the next wine. One might take that as a hint to give it patience in one’s cellar as well. (DS)
