Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle 2014
Wine Advocate - The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Petit Chapelle comes from the domaine’s smallest holding at 0.25-hectares. It has a pure, tightly wound bouquet with black cherries and strawberry pastilles, floral tones emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is good nervosité here, tangible mineralité with impressive persistence on the finish. Very feminine and beguiling, this wine will only require a couple of years in bottle but it has the pedigree and substance to age with style.
Burghound - Unobtrusive wood notes combine with those of fresh, cool and bright red berry, floral, spice and humus scents. There is a lovely sense of refinement to the intense, focused and tautly muscular mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent punch, persistence and balance though note well that this will also require extended patience.
Vinous - Bright medium red. Subdued red cherry aroma. Shows less early texture and flesh than the Clos du Fontenys but more saline minerality, giving it more sappiness and inner-mouth tension. This juicy, pretty wine finishes with a firm tannic spine and an impression of finesse.
A typical Gevrey in the sense that it is a wine of breadth and body. Substantial and hearty but such beautiful, compelling fruit to go with it. Flavours of strawberry, redcurrant and cherry overlaying a soft, creamy texture. A greta success. Situated just under Chapelle Chambertin, where the soils are typically "Gevrey" and clay dominated.
