Cask sample, not racked. Firm and sinewy. Lots of structure. But masses of sweet fruit in the middle too. Made to charm. Drink 2024-2035. 16.5/20
(50% new oak, vs. 20% for the Gevrey villages): Good medium red. Conveys a blacker fruit character on the nose than the village wine, with a complicating hint of licorice and a peppery whole-cluster quality. More tactile, ripe and deep, offering more energy and definition; there's little sign of peppery underripeness here in spite of the stem component. The cherry and red berry flavors are complicated by a savory mineral quality. This suave, terroir-driven Gevrey finishes with fine tannins and good subtle length. (ST)
A notably ripe nose reflects soft notes of menthol and a hint of cough drop character along with ripe red cherry, cassis and earth. There is very good richness to the round yet intense and reasonably well-delineated medium weight flavors and the minerality is more evident on the moderately structured finish. While this could be enjoyed young, it should reward a decade or more of cellaring if desired.
Ripe and juicy, this is a richly fruity and structured wine. With acidity to keep it crisp, the wine has layers of warm cherry flavors and generous tannins. It has an excellent future, so drink from 2022. (RV)
