clos des varoilles 2004
2004 Domaine des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoillestry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. The nose hovers close to fantastic – beautiful red berry fruit edged with cream – but from time to time there’s a rather powder and indistinct edge, the wine could never quite make up its mind. The palate is nicely textured with good intensity and acidity. The tannins are well covered with sweet fruit and a lovely creamy edge to the finish too. There was no sign of green in this wine, but one-third of the bottle lay in the fridge overnight; the nose is now earthy with a strong cedar streak – no red fruit and ‘no love’! A Jeckyll and Hyde performance reminiscent of this Clos St.Jacques.
Rebuy – Maybe
