Produced from seven small parcels in four vineyards (Petite Chapelle, Cherbaudes, Bel Air, and Champonnets), whose average vine age is 60 years old, the 2002 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru boasts a gorgeous nose of spicy red and black cherries. Medium-bodied, satin-textured, and seamless, it is crammed with detailed red berry flavors. Elegant, precise, and fresh, this beautifully ripe wine has outstanding concentration, harmony, and length. (PR)
This changed rather remarkably from the cask sample from an incredibly elegant nose to one that is so ripe that it reminds me of an '03. The precision on the mid-palate remains and this is nicely detailed if not powerful and this finishes with moderate complexity and buried tannins and huge length.
Deep red. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, coffee and nutty oak; seems a bit less precise than the en Champs. Sweet but quite young, even a bit musclebound. Currant and spice flavors. Nicely balanced wine with fine tannins. 90+ (ST)
