A sleek mouth feel, a nicely integrated acidity, and an attractive sweetness on the finish characterize this Burgundy, once reported to be Napoleon's favorite wine.
Gevrey-Chambertin is at the foot of the Combe de Lavaux, a small valley that is known for bringing in cool air that keeps the vines healthy and contributes to slow ripening. Gevrey-Chambertin was Napoleon's favorite wine. The Count of Las Cases, whose collection of memoirs recounting his interaction with Napoleon, noted that “for fifteen years the Emperor constantly drank the same wine, which he liked and which we believed was good for him”.
Rich and juicy, offering cherry, raspberry and spice flavors that coat the palate, while earth and tobacco accents add detail. Features a line of fine tannins underneath but, for now, this is all about fleshy fruit. Shows fine harmony, polish, and length. Best from 2024 through 2037. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
