2006 gevrey-chambertin – château de marsannay


2006 Château de Marsannay, Gevrey-Chambertin
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose begins with deep but narrow aromas with a little mint-leaf and occasional but pretty flowers and cream. There seems not too much tightening of flavour yet – there’s still a little rasp of tannin and a reasonable width of flavour too. Good acidity, which helps further expand the flavours in the mid-palate, which also shows a nice floral aspect. Young, this is a more than adequate wine for the label!
Rebuy – Yes

    Interesting Nick. I just bought 6 bottles of the 2009 vintage at a wine store in a village (Cormatin) in the north of the Macon. Not exactly cheap (29.50 euros a bottle). I’ll try one this weekend.

    I bought a few bottles at the vineyard in September 2012. Smooth yet full, Stems and skins. Can’t buy it here.
