    (Ponsot Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvée l'Abielle) Medium ruby red. The nose starts with a little undergrowth then soil, both fade to reveal a diffuse red-fruit curtain - improvement is required and the patient are rewarded; first with a deeper plum fruit before a lovely high-toned and focused red fruit effect - very nice. The palate is much less ripe than the 01 Bachelet Gevrey that precedes it, providing a sour-cherry fruit which is not unattractive and mirrored by the balanced, mouth-watering yet somewhat tart acidity. The overall texture is excellent with understated velvet tannins. In the end this is a wine that even with food, is just a little too tart - I can enjoy it, but I wouldn’t rebuy it.
