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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, which contains 20-30% premier cru in the final blend, has a pretty red cherry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet that has commendable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy redcurrant and raspberry fruit on the entry, nicely structured with just a touch of sinew on the licorice-tinged finish. There is certainly commendable substance here for a village cru and it will probably age for longer than people will allow it.
