2010 Philippe Livera (Domaine Tilleuls), Gevrey Chambertin En Champ
Deep colour. The nose starts with a deep waft of cushioned, dark oak – it really needs about 30 minutes for this to fade to ‘acceptable’ for my palate – but by which time, the wine is much more than acceptable! A dark cherry aroma is slowly allowed to take centre stage as the oak fades. Very understated fine tannin and beautiful acidity support dark, intense and rather elegant (for Gevrey) flavours. There’s a succulence to the mid-palate fruit-flavour that almost rushes you into taking another sip. The finishing note is part mineral, part bitter oak but quite attractive. Excellent villages!
Rebuy – Yes
