Tasting Notes

A pungent nose of wood and reduction introduce bigger and richer if less refined medium-bodied flavors that are very rich, indeed almost opulent with a subtle minerality that becomes more apparent as the finish sits on the palate. This is also a bit awkward but here it seems clearer that it will ultimately harmonize. Drink: 2027+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (66), April 2017

(50% vendange entier): Bright red. Alluring nose combines raspberry, flowers, crushed rock and smoky minerality. Pleasingly pliant but juicy too, offering a knockout combination of fresh red fruits, thick texture and pungent minerality. Builds impressively on the long, juicy back end, which features serious but suave tannins. These vines come fom an old quarry on bedrock. The village of Gevrey-Chambertin was "a piece of cake" in 2015, according to Leroux, who noted that his previous vineyard source for Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Etelois was sold.
