Gevrey Fontenys, Domaine Joseph Roty 2010
An attractively layered and enveloping nose of black cherry and black raspberry is set off by subtle earth, spice and wood nuances. There is real verve to the wonderfully fresh and seductively textured flavors that exude a fine minerality on the balanced, delicious, dusty and long finish where a discreet if not invisible touch of wood appears. I like the balance and depth and the wood will probably integrate in time.

Good dark red. Ripe, vibrant nose offers kirsch, redcurrant, cedar and a whiff of black pepper. At once silky-sweet and tangy, with lovely inner-mouth energy to the fine-grained red and darker fruit flavors. Notes of violet and minerals emerge with air. Finishes broad, lively and long, with harmonious acidity and ripe tannins giving the wine solid structure for aging. More refined than the 2011 version.
