Tasting Notes

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from four sectors, 50% in the south and 50% in the north of the appellation, and was completely de-stemmed. This shows just a bit of reduction on the nose, although that will be resolved by bottling time. The medium-bodied palate is fresh and sorbet-like, displaying grainy tannin and kirsch and cassis notes toward the joyous finish. Expect a decade of drinking pleasure. Drink 2020-2030.

The 2017s form a strong follow-up to the outstanding 2016s. Colladot shows deft use of whole bunches, knows when to select new oak or used, add stems or not (details for each cuvée are presented in the tasting notes.) He allows the vineyards to articulate their own personalities so that each one offers its own take on the vintage. If you have not discovered Coquard Loison Fleurot, practice saying that name on a daily basis, or use the acronym “CLF.” It never does “DRC” any harm. Make sure you bag some of the 2017s when they hit the market.
