2017 Burgundy: A Modern Classic (Jan 2019)

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs comes from vineyards in the northern slopes towards Brochon and includes 20% whole bunches and raised in 30% new oak. It offers brambly black fruit on the nose with just a hint of iodine that emerges with aeration. The palate is quite sharp and citric on the entry with compact red berry fruit tinged with cola and balanced. It may be missing the persistence on the finish of the previous two vintages. Fine.
