Gevrey Chambertin 2014 Francois Parent
|Streek||Bourgogne, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Village has the most satisfying nose among the Fran?ois Parent village crus, with lively black and red berry fruits interwoven with fine mineralite. The palate is ripe on the entry, showing a bit of wood at the moment even though it was aged in a one-year old barrel (I would be interested to know the toasting here). Hopefully that will be absorbed by the time of bottling as there is real succulence here.
More spicy, more apparent oak here than on the Morey-St-Denis. Dark-red fruit with a savoury overlay. Oak evident on the palate but it is well balanced by the depth of fruit. Savoury finish with fine, definite tannins. Both fruity and elegant.?
