Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Aux Combottes – Vinous – 91+ Points
Medium red. Sexy high-toned scents of strawberry, coffee and dried rose. At once dense and lively on the palate, with red berry flavors accented by pungent spices and graphite minerality. Still a bit youthfully tough but the tannins spread out horizontally to dust the palate on the persistent back end. This sappy premier cru needs time.
