marchand-grillot, gevrey 1er petit-chapelle

2005 Marchand-Grillot, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Petit-Chapelle try to find this wine...
Deep colour. The nose starts quite savoury, only slowly offering a deeper black-fruit core that has a faint white pepper coating. In the mouth this is much more mineral, the acidity is more obvious but retains good balance. The tannins are a little more visible and help the flavour stain your tongue. Good, mineral length with a twist of coffee. Overall a little more (obvious) structure and much less comely than the Perrières today, but qualitatively its equal. Another wine I shall buy.
Rebuy – Yes
