The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin is a gorgeous wine laced with sweet red cherries, dried flowers, sage, mint and licorice. It shows the energy, nuance and focus of Gevrey, but there is more than enough fruit to smooth out some of the angular contours that are sometimes present in entry-level wines from the village. Floral notes add brightness on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
Aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry typical to Gevrey-Chambertin mark this wine, which shows firm tannic structure allied to silky, elegant fruit with nuances of sweet oak and spice ending in a full finish.
