2013 Chezeaux, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Lavaux St.Jacques
I guess that this will be the first of these vinified by Amèlie Berthaut…
Rather deeply coloured. Wide and sweet, the nose has a macerating black cherry note, very faintly accented with floral references. Large and intensely flavoured – almost black fruit. A subtle undertow of tannic texture, then another wave of flavour in the mid-palate. I’ve always been more of a fan of more red-fruited wines, but here is a sleek, super-tasty Gevrey – I think I should have opened the villages and saved this for a rainy day in 10 years – but such is life! Fine wine!
Rebuy – Yes
