Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from July 18 2018

Wine: 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin "Estournelles St. Jacques"

Producer: Domaine Frédéric Esmonin

Comment: Here too there are background whiffs of oak toast on the very fresh aromas of red and black cherry, floral, spice and all-but-invisible earth nuances. There is excellent energy to the well-detailed and highly refined middle weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality while delivering very fine persistence on the once again slightly warm finale.

Score: 91 Drink: 2022+
