An integrated and complex nose. The palate was lively but was drying out on the mid palate. Some sweet fruit balanced with fantastic earthy notes. Great length and a pleasure to drink with food. On its last leg. #josephdrouhin #grandcru #pinotnoir #charmeschambertin #gevrychambertin #burgundy #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago
Still a noble structure but I guess it is too old now to be enjoyed. There's this harshness that doesn't allow any fruit or savoury notes to be perceived. Was it poor cellaring? Maybe the status of the terroir was it for early consumption? I'll never know.

Aged beef, smoke, dirty, earthy mushrooms, toasted sesame, lighter mouthfeel that gets downright twisted into a graphite and cran point to scrawl in a charred cedar script the graffiti of Gevry Chambertin. An underripe grape and almost lemon zest on lime and lemongrass with a minerally shale and chalky clay interplay. Much too young to enjoy now, but the seared tuna and marinated portobello mushroom with quinoa and heirloom beets was calling for an earth mama of just these proportions. Missed it by a few years. But gonna enjoy the next one profusely!! #burgundy #bourgogne #pinotnoir #GevryChambertin — 6 years ago
