A clear, brilliant cherry red. Distinguished and complex, slightly woody, with hints of vanilla and red and black fruits (blackcurrants, raspberries and Morello cherries). Animal notes of musk and fur. Full-bodied, with ageing potential, long and persistent. As the wine develops the presence of red fruits is confirmed, with a sub-structure of licorice. Gevrey wines are noted for their strong character and intense, expressive aromas - powerful but extremely mellow.
The intense aromas of this Gevrey-Chambertin call for rich dishes such as a saddle of lamb, beef bourguignon or coq au vin, and ripe cheeses.
