1995 Dominique Laurent • Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champeaux

Whole cluster fermentation was used on the dark-ruby-colored Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux. It offers sweet red and black berry aromatics and an intensely ripe, jammy, viscous, full-bodied flavor profile packed with plummy concentrated fruit. Well-delineated and structured, it possesses ripe, round tannins in its admirable finish. Projected maturity: 2002-2009. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided.
