Alright Burgundy Lovers, a gift for you! A fabulous Gevrey Chambertin for $29.99 bottle? How you ask? Domaine Frederic Esmonin use to sell all his production to Leroy and Louis Jadot. But now they are bottling much of it on their own. The vines in Clos Prieur are 50-60 years old. Always a sleeper, this wine is as good as many Premier Crus and it is very affordable and delicious with a proven ability to age. It has gorgeous pure fruit and is supple and elegant with a good underlying backbone. Undeniably charming, the balance here is really lovely. This is a Burgundy that can be consumed with pleasure now or cellared for the longer term.

Supple in texture, this red boasts cherry, black currant, graphite and earth notes. Starts out very elegant for the appellation, picking up firm tannins and more weight on the long finish. by BS, Wine Spectator , 2019
