A lovely and expressive nose that is unusually broad relative to its normal backward state features a pretty mix of red, black and violet earth-infused aromas that lead to rich, supple and round flavors that possess good depth and a nervy and racy finish, all wrapped in a nicely long finish.

The domaine's 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin represents a union of fruit from many different parcels south and east of town for which the fruit was de-stemmed. Flatteringly sweetly-fruited, indeed subtly candified on the nose and palate, it offers a roasted underlying meatiness and subtle hints of caramelization continuing with a satisfyingly sweetly-rich, gentle finish. In short, as is the proprietor's intent, this is 'supple and agreeable'- not to mention reeking of vintage-typical ripeness.

Wow for a village level Burgundy. Rich cherry flavors and forest floor on the nose and palate. This is much more forward than usual and has a long finish. @ Elisir
