roty’s 2006 gevrey brunelle


Okay (I hear you cheer) the last Brunelle for a bit…

2006 Joseph Roty, Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvée La Brunelle
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is interesting; dark and hinting at the leafiness that may eventually come, slowly softening to show a fainter red fruit – acid cherry is the last note. The wine starts with a slightly brusque Gevrey impression before softening with air, there’s fine acidity that peaks in the mid-palate with (again) a nice creamy aspect to the fruit. I have the impression that it has lost its fat, but the concentration is quite enough to offset. Nice, the oak is but a memory at this age…
Rebuy – Yes
