Description

A relatively pretty nose combines notes of red currant, pomegranate, pinot spice and soft earth nuances. There is both fine energy and delineation to the caressing middle weight flavors that immediately tighten up on the bitter pit fruit-inflected finish. This excellent Gevrey villages should be approachable on the younger side but clearly has the stuff to reward up to a decade of cellaring. 89-91 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66

Good medium red. Musky red berries, spices and dried flowers on the scented nose. Silky and seamless on the palate, displaying rare volume for village wine. Very sexy round, dry village wine with subtle Gevrey soil tones. The long finish features lingering red berry flavors. 91 points, (ST) Vinous

The 2015 Gevrey Chambertin Villages is Benjamin's main village cuvée that constitutes over 9,000 bottles, mostly sourced from Les Sevrées and La Justice (two-thirds and one-third respectively). It has a crisp, blackberry and redcurrant-scented bouquet with a touch of black tea. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, fine acidity and poise with good depth on the fleshy finish. This is a commendable village cru, the kind you would instantly whip off a restaurant list. 88-90 points, (NM) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
