Description

The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru is a blend of Cherbaud, Bel Air and Petit Chapelle. Up until 2012 it included Champonnet, which Arnaud now blends separately. Matured in 40% new oak, it has a very expressive, mineral-driven bouquet with vivid blackberry and cranberry scents, cold limestone in the background. The palate is very composed with filigree tannin and sensual in the mouth with a keen line of acidity; this is a more understated Gevrey but that detail on the finish is wondrous. 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Bright red with ruby highlights. Deep, smoky minerality complements purple and black fruits on the nose. Sappy, intense and nicely delineated, showing classic Gevrey energy to the flavors of tangy dark berries and game. Finishes with firm, fine-grained tannins and excellent length. This wine will give early pleasure but should also age well. 'This is always a very ripe cuvée but with good acidity. 90-92 points Vinous
