Maison Roche de Bellene Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2019
From a two-acre parcel of old vines (planted in 1950) in one of the greatest villages of the Côtes de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin is prized for the full-flavored, earthy style of its wines, and that character is expertly captured here in this wine that is naturally fermented and spends 15 months in barrique (20% new oak). Firm, ripe tannins give the wine excellent aging potential.
"This red evokes blackberry and black cherry flavors, shaded by spicy oak, celery root and graphite accents. Fluid and firms up with a light dusting of tannins on the finish. Best from 2023." 90 Points Wine Spectator
