Again, in its sense of typicity and overall completeness and class, this is an outstanding success, no matter how you slice it. From four very well placed parcels averaging 50 years old, this presents the tell tale Gevrey aromatic notes of light black fruits, a certain meatiness, and deep purple florals, leading to downright delicious succulent and sappy light black fruits, with a sense of salty mineral complexity and tonic poise that had me salivating and then some. In all things Gevrey typicity meets fruit, floral, savory, and mineral complexity, it is hard to ask for more than this from a villages wine. Again, a little star * awarded here, and a another exceptional value play imho.
“(from Craite Paille, Les Seuvrées, Belair and La Justice). A more deeply pitched nose speaks of black cherry, plum, red currant, earth and subtle sauvage nuances. The medium-bodied flavors also possess a caressing mouthfeel though here there is evident minerality along with a touch of youthful austere on the slightly more structured finale. This too is really quite good for its level and is also worth a look. (89-91)/2024+” Allan Meadows for the 2016
