Suggestion from April 16 2014
Wine: 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin
Producer: Pierre André au Château de Corton André
Comment: Here the wood is already almost completely absorbed and does not detract from the overall sense of purity. There is excellent freshness to the ripe and very Gevrey nose of red and dark berry fruit, stone and pungent soil tones. There is fine volume and admirable richness to the relatively big-bodied flavors that are supported by firm tannins on the austere, long and serious finish. This is a terrific villages and well worth considering.
