Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Gevrey-Chambertin 2014 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Character of the wine
Gevrey-Chambertin wines are deep in colour with fine expressive aromas. When young they suggest blackcurrants and other red or black soft fruits, with hints of liquorice heightened by their being partially matured in new oak casks. As the wines age they acquire further aromas suggestive of animal pelts, musk, spicy vanilla and Havana cigars. Rich, fine and full-bodied they have a robust, well-balanced structure. These wines, with their resounding name, are famed for their bouquet and finesse; they are known to have been Napoleon's favourite wine, which he took with him on his campaigns.
Vintage 2014 presents an excellent profile of fresh fruits, a beautiful purple shine and an intense colour, a very rich aromatic range, of various scents of small red fruits, and beautiful, delicate and airy floral notes. Tanins are supple and elegant, with great gustative qualities, delicate and silky.
