Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey Chambertin Alexandrine

Marc Roy Alex-(made 100% from tiny “millerandage” grapes, or shot berries, which give much higher solid to liquid ratios; it is not made every vintage) There is just enough reduction present to warrant giving this a thorough aeration if you’re going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is outstanding mid-palate concentration to the very rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that buffer the firm finish that is beautifully complex and sneaky long. This is sufficiently tightly wound to merit extended cellaring yet I suspect that it will also be reasonably approachable young if that’s your fruit preference
