*These wines were picked by our tasters during the Burgundy 2015 en primeur tastings, before prices were released, and are based on historical context.
A lovely Beaune village, from a mere 8 ouvrées (one third of a hectare). Notes of black and red cherry, liquorice and rich soil precede a silky, supple palate with rich, ripe tannins. A generous bottling which will make friends in its youth.
Lively cherry and raspberry fruit showing clarity of fruit. The fresh attack is lively, lifted and stylish rather than dense, but is finely balanced wih a long piquant finish. It's not especially deep or powerful, but it's a fine village Gevrey.
