A single lieu dit villages level bottling, from 60 year old vines in the deeeeep and very iron rich soils of Champerrier. It has a bit more body than the Vieilles Vignes, and this year, a noteworthy sense of deep expressive character that impressed me mightily….This year, it is a knockout…..a little star *awarded here.
“(from a .28 ha holding where the Gevrey parcel is in Champerrier Bas with another on the Brochon side in Les Champs Perriers). A distinctly cool nose combines notes of ultra-fresh and bright red currant, raspberry and plenty of Gevrey style earth nuances. The delicious medium weight flavors exude evident minerality on the youthfully austere, serious, focused and sneaky long finish. This is also very much worth consideration.

“A slightly denser purple colour. The nose is floral as well as having a deep raspberry fruit. There is a beautifully pure fruit with both depth and charm, with a fine thread of mineral acidity running through the middle. This has been finely crafted and will give pleasure from the medium term. Drink from 2026-2030. Tasted: November 2022” 90-92 Jasper Morris “Four Star” wine
