Gevrey-Chambertin "La Justice"

2014

This deliciously complex wine comes from two plots of vines, rooted in alluvial silt and shale, within the La Justice vineyard. It exhibits both lovely freshness and notable depth, with lots of verve and a weighty mouthfeel. Black cherries permeate the aromas and burst on the palate, surrounded by an exotic array of flowers, mint and spices. Fine tannins frame the lively flavors through the persistent, dark-fruit finish.

"A dense version, boasting black cherry, blackberry, earth, graphite and tobacco aromas and flavors. Balanced overall, but needs time to integrate fully. Terrific finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 15 cases imported."
