Aux Etelois Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2013

From magnum. Had it next to the stylistically similar Fourrier Gevrey VV, but this was the better wine for me - it had a little more depth and texture. Started of similarly reductive, but quickly opened up to scents of roses, intense red cherry, and smoky insence. The palate's velvety, mix of red and dark fruits, rich but offers lots of freshness with its crisp acidity. Minerality plays second fiddle at the moment, but is evident in the long spicy finish. I bet this was how it looked like when it was first bottled, so time can only make it better. 1er level for sure!

NB: From WH - This plot is located on the southern side of Griotte-Chambertin alongside the Claude Dugat plot and below the Duroché plot of Griottes-Chambertin. It is quite strange that this vineyard has been classified as village as it’s located so close to the Grand Crus.

@Ceccherini Cristiano Got that write up from Winehog - just for my reference. Aux Etelois, I've only had a couple of times. All Duroche. I reckon it's got the concentration and length to be a lesser 1er each time, but I believe this has much to do with producer. Same as Griotte I guess. It does have the reputation of being a lesser GC, but I reckon in the right hands... It's quite consistent. Same as Latricierws. Producer producer producer! Hahaha.

@Aaron Tan
I 100% agree
I just wanted to mentioned too how important is the terroir
No producer can make an excellent wine out of a bad parcel in any vineyard
I recall Hubert De Montille saying in Mondovino how the terroir is 10 times more important than the vigneron/winemaker
And as an example you think of Rousseau Clos de la Roche where he doesn't really have a top parcel when Dujac or Ponsot do and make a better wine (IMO) than what I consider to be one of the best red wine producer of the Cote de Nuits(I know, the other two are not bad either). Anyway I just follow those lines too, producer, vineyard, parcel, vintage, but it is never easy.
I guess that's what makes it interesting. 👌🙏

@Ceccherini Cristiano Agreed! Man can indeed overcome the factors of earth and nature, but their wisdom and effort can only go so far.

Vieilles Vignes Lavaut Saint-Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Good acidity and crunch but a little bit of pesky effervescence that didn’t seem to burn off. More depth in the LSJ than the 18 vosne romanee — 5 months ago

Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2017

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2017 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru has quite a "bullish" nose with blackberry, wild hedgerow, clove and autumn leaf aromas that stride out of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh line of acidity, touches of orange rind tincturing the red berry fruit. This gently builds in the mouth to a fairly intense red berry, autumn leaf and tobacco tinged finish that lingers for 45 seconds. Excellent. (Neal Martin, Vinous, November 2018) — 2 years ago

Mark brought this bottle. Subtle nose of victory. Bright uplifting tones of conquering. Oh my. If Cleopatra were to drink a 1er Cru bottle with Mark and I while eating sushi, this is the bottle she would choose. — 2 years ago
