The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru aux Combottes, which includes around 80% whole bunch fruit, has a fragrant, floral bouquet that opens wonderfully in the glass: mineral-tinged black fruit that is very delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine saline seam, quite Morey-Saint-Denis in style, a little foursquare on the finish. I like the precision here in this Gevrey-Combottes that is somewhat sturdy, but with impressive detail.
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90-92 pts.
Bright, dark red. Sexy but reticent nose hints at black cherry, raspberry and leather. Then sweet, pliant and seriously concentrated on the palate, communicating sappy energy to the flavors of red and dark berries and spices. The dark-fruit finish features chewy tannins and excellent length.
