Marchand-Tawse Champeaux Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  635102

Good red-ruby color. Very ripe nose melds blackberry, violet, licorice pastille, fruitcake and bitter chocolate; there's something a bit exotic here. Dense, rich and thick, but with its volume leavened by harmonious acidity and noteworthy mineral thrust. At once powerful and penetrating, this wine finishes firm and very long, with medicinal dark berry and dark chocolate notes and ripe, well-buffered tannins. Has the strong material to support a slow and graceful evolution in bottle. Score - 91-93. (Stephen Tanzer,, Jan. 2018)
