This 3.5 hectare Gevrey domaine has only bottled since 1989. A small selection of wines that include a Bourgogne, a villages Gevrey, 1er Crus in Goulots, Petits Cazetiers and Combe-aux-Moines, finally this grand cru.
1996 Dominique Gallois, Charmes-Chambertin
Medium-plus ruby-red colour. Bloody with sweet, dank, faintly sulfury oak and tonnes of turned leaf litter on the forward nose. In the mouth your main impression is the sweet river of acidity running through the core. As you reach the mid-palate the wine expands before slowly contracting into a good finish. I would say that there are many, many years in this wine yet, but it seems to be entering an early window of drinkability
