Continuing with the particularly strong Domaine Tawse estate Gevrey Chambertin wines (former Domaine Maume holdings), the first of the three Gevrey villages is plain delicious, in a very dark red fruited vein, with invitingly intense florals. En bouche, it echoes the same fruit/floral register with a seamlessness and light earthy savory profile that is très Gevrey and quite fine and persistent. This is terrific Gevrey villages, as it so consistently is. A little * awarded here.
“Domaine. 20% whole bunch vinification and 20% new wood. A very pretty cherry purple colour, with a lively tingle for the whole bunches on top of an undoubted elegance of fruit. There is a succulence on the palate, with the fruit cascading through to a fine long finish. Drink from 2025-2030. Tasted: November 2022.” 90-92 Jasper Morris “Four Star” wine
“(from a combination of Murots, Roncevie, Clos Prieur, Combe du Bas, La Justice, Champ Franc, Grandes Rayes and Fourneaux). A very Gevrey nose reveals aromas of humus, the sauvage and various red berries that are trimmed in a hint of herbal tea. Here too the mouthfeel of the middleweight flavors is rich, generous and seductive while displaying very good length if only average depth on the moderately structured and youthfully austere finale. (88-91)/2028+” Allen Meadows ——–> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”
“The 2021 Gevrey Chambertin village comes from the estate’s own biodynamically farmed vines. It has a bright and vivacious bouquet with more mineralité than the selection. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, quite chiselled and taut with a vibrant finish. This is very refined.” 90-92 Neil Martin
