louis max 2010 gevrey clos prieur

In the last couple of years I’ve encountered the occasional bottle of Louis Max in blind tastings, and thought them rather good. Time for a closer look?

2010 Louis Max, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos Prieur
Medium, medium-plus colour. Textured dark fruit and higher toned notes. Starts lithe and a little lean – lovely acidity. Then an unexpected extra dimension of flavour, and then another – the flavour really widening and delivering an impressive length. All the action is at the ‘back-end’ here. 20 minutes in the glass and there seems a little more richness and silk to the texture, the high-tones have also coalesced to bring a floral note. A lovely clean and tasty wine, no question…
Rebuy – Yes
