    Other Reviews....
    Pungent aromas are composed by notes of reduction and wood toast at present. There is excellent volume to the sleek, concentrated and more powerful flavors that flash a subtle minerality on the driving, firm and austere but not really rustic finish. At least some patience required.

    The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champonnet 1er Cru is completely de-stemmed and matures in around 60% new oak. It has a very well defined bouquet with more red than black fruit, hints of lavender and pot pourri, vigorous and open. The palate is very well balanced with a lightly spiced opening, quite sappy in the mouth with a juicy and expressive finish. There is a sense of joie-de-vivre in this wine already and I hope that will be translated into bottle.

    Neal Martin - Vinous

    This used to be part of the 1er cru blend, separated out in 2015 but not ‘16. Light to medium purple, a slight toasty reduction. Ripe cherry and strawberry notes, the reduction continues, good wine again but not magisterial. Lovely sweet red fruit finish with just enough acidity.
