This offers a big step up in aromatic elegance if not complexity with its aromas of red and dark berry, plum, floral scents and plenty of spice nuances. There is a sauvage character to the detailed and mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent drive and balance on the strikingly complex finish. This is a Gevrey 1er of relative refinement as the supporting tannins are quite fine. BURGHOUND

Stunning purity and delineation are the signatures of the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru. Dark red and black cherries, menthol, licorice and cloves burst form the glass. The tannins are firm, yet they are also beautifully balanced by the sheer density of the fruit. Rich and voluptuous throughout, the 2012 is firing on all cylinders today. Like all of the wines in this range, the 1er Cru is going to require quite a bit of patience. The 1er Cru is a blend of fruit from Fontenys, Corbeaux and La Perrie`re. ANTONIO GALLONI
