The 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Village is a blend of three parcels, though 50% is Au Combe de Dessus. With 20% new oak, it has an attractive wild strawberry and red plum bouquet. Impressive focus. The palate is medium-bodied with finely-tuned tannins, quite vibrant and lively, orange rind and touches of black pepper furnishing the finish. Give this a year or two in bottle.
There's just one cuvée of 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Village this year, and it's an attractive effort, offering up notes of red berries, orange rind and petals, followed by a medium-bodied, vibrant palate with tangy acids and powdery tannins that assert themselves with gentle grip on the finish.
