Reviewed October 13, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|The vines from which this remarkably commanding Gevrey-Chambertin were sourced range from 42 to 72 years of age. Information like this is listed on the back label. Good bright red. Raspberry, licorice, crushed rock and a hint of tar on the nose. Sappy and suave, with mouthfilling texture and excellent energy to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. An impressively large-scaled, even powerful, village wine with a broad, long finish featuring substantial spicy tannins. Score: 89-92 Source: Steve Heimoff, Vintages Wine Catalogue|
