  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    An impenetrable melange of black cherry, blackberry, violet and spice aromas and flavors is allied to a silky texture in this red, saturated with fruit that meshes seamlessly with the iron backbone. Shows grace harmony, matched to power and structure. Best from 2023 through 2045. 50 cases imported.

    The 2015 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Bel Air reveals a deep bouquet of wild black fruit, coniferous forest floor and subtle soil tones. On the palate, the wine is fine-grained, medium to full-bodied and underpinned by juicy acids, with a firm chassis of tannin that asserts itself on the finish.

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
