John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The second Gevrey AC bottling chez Fourrier hails from vineyards on the Brochon border below the premier cru of Champeaux. I have always had a preference for the more refined personality of this bottling, and this is certainly the case in 2005. The wine is simply lovely as it offers up a complex and very pure mélange of cherries, red plums, great minerality, cocoa, a touch of raspberry and an elegant note of spice in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, tangy and intensely flavored, with supple tannins, great acids, and beautiful bounce and tang on the long, red fruity and soil-driven finish. A very, very classy village wine (Drink between 2008-2020)
