Ultra-fresh and cool aromas include those of red currant, plum, violet and a discreet application of wood. There is better volume and richness to the caressing medium weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the moderately rustic finish that leans out slightly as it sits on the palate. This isn’t refined but it does offer good depth and focused power.
The 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes offers light brambly red fruit with a touch of sous-bois scents. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, a Gevrey full Pinote, gently spiced towards the finish. Fine.

Mid crimson. An attractive reasonably perfumed nose, roses and red fruit. Medium bodied, a softer strawberry fruit, with fair length and the right fruit acid balance.
