Domaine SC Guillard Gevrey Chambertin 2017...Tom's blend
2017 Gevrey Chambertin 50% young vines 1er cru ‘Les Corbeaux’ 50% Village Gevrey Chambertin:
‘Les Corbeaux’ is bordered one side by the Grand Cru Mazis Chambertin and the other by the village of Gevrey.
The 2017 is a unique blend from the 2017 vintage and not to be repeated. This wine is deeply colored with juicy and vibrant fruit characters of cherry kernel, cassis, strawberry, liquorice and plum, the a touch of new oak on the nose, which gives it a glossy and sophisticated feel. The tannings are silky and fine, but as the wine opens they build and become more and more savoury and the purity and length of the palate just pushes on and on.
Plenty of substance to see this wine age well for more than fifteen years but a craker right now!
