Joseph Drouhin Gevrey Chambertin 2018
|France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin
Juicy, this red evokes cherry, currant and smoky oak aromas and flavors. The texture is silky and the tannins refined, yet this closes up on the finish somewhat, despite the earthy element and vibrant feel. Should open up nicely. Best from 2023 through 2037. 700 cases imported.
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has an easygoing bouquet of cranberry, raspberry, sous-bois and light tobacco aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, rounded and caressing in texture. It is not the most complex Gevrey Village you will taste, but it is well balanced with a welcome touch of spice enlivening the modest finish. Enjoy over the next five years.
