2015 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini Gevrey Chambertin Champonnets Premier Cru
The 2015 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru les Champonnets saw 65% whole bunch fruit and 65% new oak, and saw no pigeage in this vintage—just remontage. It has a lovely oyster shell scent complementing the black fruit on the nose, beautifully defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple in the mouth with crisp acidity, a perfect combination of power and refinement. What a gorgeous wine from the domaine! Dare I say that it must surely be the best they have produced from this premier cru vineyard.

Generous wood presently frames the earthy, spicy and overtly floral dark berry fruit nose that possesses a liqueur-like quality. There is excellent power to the broad-shouldered, rich and naturally sweet flavors that brim with palate coating dry extract on the sleek but quite serious finish where about the only nit is a hint of warmth. This very promising effort is very Gevrey in style and has the structure to prove it - patience required.
