Gevrey Corbeaux, Domaine Bachelet 2020

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux is the finest rendition of this cuvée I've tasted chez Bachelet. Unfurling in the glass with aromas of blackberries and raspberries mingled with exotic spices, rose petals and orange rind, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit that's girdled by tangy acids and fine, powdery tannins.

Rich black purple. For once there is if anything more intensity here than the village Gevrey. Usually it is a question of slightly more finesse without greater weight. More oak take up, more in red fruit. Soft sweet red fruit to finish.
