Joseph Drouhin, Gevrey-Chambertin 750ml 2016France, Burgundy
'A more deeply pitched nose displays plenty of underbrush and humus characters on the wild dark currant scents. The mouth feel is almost as polished as that of the Vosne villages with notably more minerality that really comes up on the complex if perhaps not quite as persistent finish.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89/100
'The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a well-defined bouquet with lifted redcurrant and wild strawberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple in the mouth with a clean and pure mulberry finish. This is a delicious village cru from Drouhin, equal to the 2015 last year. Recommended and probably this will be good value.' – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, 88-90/100
'Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste.' – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
