marchand-grillot gevrey-chambertin 1er cru perrieres 2005

Apart from an itinerant Chambolle and Morey Villages, Marchand-Grillot are a source for site specific Gevrey villages, a couple of 1ers and a Ruchottes. Not a producer I know well, but if this wine is anything to go by, they are worthy of more attention.
2005 Marchand-Grillot, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Perrièrestry to find this wine...
From 50 year old vines. Deep cherry-red, perhaps a little purple at the rim. An open and forward nose of minty, earthy, brambly blackcurrant fruit that falls into a creamy and eventually a redder depth. Ripe, a little lush, lightly grained tannin and excellently balancing acidity. The fruit flavour is very tasty in the mid-palate, almost a crystaline ‘black jelly’. Decent length. No tightening here I think – absolutely delicious right now.
Rebuy – Yes

    Bill have you ever had Harmand Geoffroy version of this wine. I tasted a vertical back 6 years on this wine including the 06 and they were awesome.Very Floral and spicy. Also, a great value.
