Kel's Birthday - Wine and Poker Night (Kat and Yuwen's): Simply lovely – this was a wonderful Gevrey-Chambertin village, and drinking quite at peak. It had a lovely nose, with sweet shades of red cherries, creamy raspberry ripple and fragrant floral notes underpinned by more masculine Gevrey scents of earth and meat and mineral and a little dash of spice. The palate had a juicy red fruitedness to it, with lovely gobs of cherries and berries seasoned with little hints of spice and mineral. This was very full and generous for a straight Gevrey, with a depth and scale that seemed to perch somewhere between village and 1er Cru level. While the tannins had softened to a nice velvety robe, there was still enough structure to give the wine some texture as it moved into a nicely long finish seasoned with another dash of spice. Delicious stuff – this was pure juicy satisfaction.
Slightly rude at first with a bit of meat and sulphide. After some time splashing around in the glass some dark, sweet fruits showed up and it was developing into a pleasant drink. Never really got it together but was a nice, chunky styled burg that should continue to drink well with food in the near term.
