Served at 63 degrees F. This is the third time I've had this. Lovely, dusty red cherry fruit, light earth and baking spice notes. Solid core of acidity and fine balance. Overall, though delicious, it's a bit reserved / closed at the moment. I suspect this will benefit greatly from short to mid-term cellaring and turn out to be a somewhat delicately styled Gevrey that I'll pair with bird dishes...

(Domaine Perrot-Minot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes Cuvée Selection) Dark, blackish pink; big, bright red fruit with underlying citrus on nose; tight, tart entry to tart red fruit palate with good grip and hints of espresso, fine tannins; medium-plus finish 91+ pts. (declassified barrels of Clos de Beze, consisting of pressed juice and skin contact that their CdB usually doesn’t have; should age well)
