"The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village offers brambly red berry fruit on the nose, hints of crushed stone that percolate through with aeration. The palate is more cohesive and fleshier than the Clos du Château: tart red berry fruit, black pepper and a light sous-bois note on the finish. This should be approachable after two or three years. I find this a step ahead of the Clos du Château this year." - Neal Martin
