The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is a blend of seven parcels and from this year, two less than previous years since they have now been rented to other producers, reducing the village cru from 2.4ha to 1.8ha. It has a fresh bouquet with lifted raspberry and fresh strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet red cherry, quite candied fruit and a long licorice-tinged finish. Fine.
Always the first to be picked because it's at the bottom of the slope. Lots of sweet fruit at first and very gentle. These wines are like a warm embrace with a lick of strawberry jam. Eric Rousseau doesn't expect this to firm up that much because the tannins aren?t at all marked. Lovely stuff.
