Domaine Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin les Corbeaux Vieilles Vignes 2015
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux is beautiful, wafting from the glass with notes of wild blueberries, blackberries, rose petal and wood smoke, elegantly framed by new oak. On the palate, the wine is supple, expansive and quite generous and gourmand in style, its tannins concealed by an ample core of fruit. Bachelet observes that this parcel, located between Mazis-Chambertin and Fonteny, possesses clay-rich soils that tend to give muscular, virile wines. To temper that tendency, he does few punch downs (a practice he started in 2014) and finds the results more elegant-a contention it would be difficult to dispute.
