Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes, 2008, Domaine Arlaud
2008 Gevrey-Chambertin “Aux Combottes”: (from 70+ year old vines).
Mild reduction knocks down the expressiveness of the otherwise cool red cherry and blue berry fruit nose that is notably stony and this character also suffuses the fresh, cool and impressively precise middle weight flavors that deliver real verve and punch on the refined, lingering and seductive finish.
A wine of class and grace.
