marc roy 2008 gevrey clos prieur


The wines of Alexandrine Roy are not exactly cheap, but in terms of absolute quality they are something of a bargain – I’d pay this again without blinking…

2008 Marc Roy, Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has a depth of dark red fruit with just a faint sweetness and eventually a characterful twist of tobacco. This is lovely; a depth of fresh dark fruit, just enough texture to give a slightly cushioned satin impression and tannins that are oh-so silky – one of Alexandrine Roy’s signatures I think. Long for a villages with just a hint of aniseed and blue fruit flavour. A wine that was very, very much appreciated.
Rebuy – Yes
