Domaine René Bouvier Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux 2016
Located on a hillside in the northern part of the appellation, the terroir of our Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Champeaux is composed entirely of encrinal limestone (Calcaire à Entroques). The stony soil of this plot (0.22 ha / 0.54 acre) produces healthy grapes, with good levels of concentration, and excellent ripeness. The wine is dense and substantial, with a deep bright colour. The palate is rich, and the wine has good depth and flavour, with a persistent finish that reveals elegant, structured tannins. The aromatic expression combines notes of liquorice, spices, and black fruits with more delicate nuances of violets. This wine great ageing potential, from 10 to 20 years, but it can be drunk younger if it is decanted one hour before serving.
