domaine philippe charlopin 2006 gevrey chambertin

I rarely see a Philippe Charlopin, so it was a surprise (for me) to see this on the shelf of a French supermarket. Very tasty wine.
2006 Philippe Charlopin, Gevrey-Chambertin try to find this wine...
Medium-plus colour. Slightly murky nose with a little vanilla and a faint mushroom – slowly fills out with deep and impressive primary red/black fruit to compliment the vanilla and eventually a little brioche. Some fat and plenty of mid-palate dimension. Balanced and long. This was both friendly and at the same time not a hint facile – I liked it very much
Rebuy – Yes
