camille giroud 1976 gevrey 1er cazetiers

1976 Camille Giroud, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cazetierstry to find this wine...
No Girouds for a while and then like buses, two come along almost together. This has an impressive, deep, sweet, caramel old wine nose; no funk, no nasties just ‘irony’ (not ironic) and interesting for sniff after sniff. Smooth on the palate, it expands very nicely as you move towards the finish. The tannins are very well managed unlike (still) some from ’76. Very alive, some elegance and quite some personality. Like many older Girouds, it doesn’t show quite the complexity you expect from the age – or the length, but despite not classing it as ‘great’, I would certainly class it as a lovely glass that was much appreciated.
Rebuy – Yes
