    This wine is fantastic! It has everything I look for in a Gevrey-Chambertin, and more. On the nose I got red cherry, fresh roasted coffee, warm spices and that earthy forest floor essance. On the palate I noticed wet stone, cola, and black fruit. Sandalwood, a hint of smoke and juicy plum lingered on the palate. I would definitely suggest a decant on this beauty.

    Wines from Frederic Esmonin never cease to amaze me! This one in particular is a stellar and a steal at such low price. It's incredibly vivid and bright aromatically - dark berries and cherries with smokey and mineral notes bursting from the glass. Fresh and lively on the palate, with beautiful crunchy acidity, black plum and black cherry on the palate. Definitely firm and well structured but also very approachable now with some decanting.

    After a thorough decant, this '16 Gevrey opened up quite well by showing notes of kirsch, redcurrants, violets and framboise liqueur. This wine comes across as a hypothetical mash-up of many Burgundies we've tasted from 2014 and 2015. It has the ripeness of 2015 but the focus and energy of 2014 all at once. If you plan to drink this in the near term, give it at least a few hours in a decanter. Otherwise, forget about it in your cellar for two to three years at least. Either way, this wine offers a ton of value for less than $40.

    Domaine Frederic Esmonin continues their streak of producing wines that punch way above their price-point with the 2016 Domaine Frederic Esmonin Gevrey Chambertin Clos Prieur. A fantastic example of the quality of the 2016 vintage this wine displays wonderful aromatics with notes of red fruits and spice with a core of red berry and mineral-laced flavors. Great precision and vibrancy this showcases everything there is to love about the 2016 vintage: precision, red fruits, vibrancy and elegance. Enjoy this stunning value and be sure to let it breathe a few hours prior to drinking so it can truly strut its stuff.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025
