They 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs was reduced by 30% production, with 30% whole bunch and 30% new oak. It has a well-defined blackberry and wild strawberry bouquet with subtle rose petal aromas. The palate is well balanced with supple red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, just a subtle chalkiness to the texture toward the finish, but a very mineral-rich aftertaste in situ. This is a replica of the brilliant 2015.

Though densely textured, this red offers ripe black currant, black cherry and violet aromas and flavors. The tannins are ripe and the vibrant acidity keeps this defined on the long aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2038.

-Wine Spectator

A ripe, ultra-fresh and airy nose features notes of red cherry, pungent earth and plenty of sauvage character. The sleek, intense and muscular medium-bodied flavours possess a lovely sense of energy on the lingering, if slightly warm, finish. This is a terrific Gevrey villages and well-worth checking out.
