TASTING NOTES

"A very fresh, pure, ripe and high-toned red berry fruit nose is also trimmed in just enough wood to mention. The tension-filled and delicious middle weight flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration, vibrancy and excellent length on the mineral-driven finish. This is textbook and very much worth your attention." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle offers impressive transparency on the nose. This is not as fruit driven as the Clos des Fonteny, but it gently unfolds with blackberry and cranberry leaf aromas. The palate is brimming full of red cherry, cranberry and subtle balsamic notes, a fine bead of acidity and great precision on the finish. Bon vin. Understated, but it means business." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"Bright medium red. Darker on the nose than the Clos du Fontenys, offering scents of black cherry, blackberry and licorice. Then juicier, more minerally and higher-pitched in the mouth; a step up in energy from the Clos du Fontenys, despite the fact that this vineyard is situated lower on the hillside. "Not geologically logical," noted Bruno Clair--in much the same way that frost damage was often worse on the hillsides than on flat land and bewilderingly haphazard in general. Finishes with a positive medicinal reserve and firm but ripe tannins." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Rich and deep. Like fermented hard candy. With a lively mineral note on the end. Fine tannins – made very confidently." JancisRobinson.com
