Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 90 points

  • Cork slightly depressed, mostly soaked through. Mature black and red cherry aromas with plenty of new oak and faint leather. Similar flavors came across as very mature to start, then slightly freshened up for an hour or two. Overall a good glass of Pinot Noir, even if not particularly Gevrey.

  • Lots of red and black cherry throughout, starting to mature, perhaps showing slightly older than I'd expect from a top 2002 1er, but still age appropriate. Best when initially opened and poured, this showed well for almost three hours, but the final taste was getting tired.

  • Bright red color with plenty of red fruit aromas with lots of oak spice. Also fresh and open fruit flavors, mostly red cherry, with good spice, acidity and tannins, then a bit sweet on finish. Very enjoyable, so purely organoleptically this would be a 92 point wine...but I never would be able to identify this as 1er from Gevrey-Chambertin.
