2009 Domaine Tortochot Gevrey-Chambertin Les Corvées - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin (7/22/2012)
A beautiful Sunday afternoon in a friend’s backyard shaded by trees and a cool wind led us to open many yummy Burgundies. This one in particular stood out, a slightly thick light red wine, hauntingly light red berries and fruits on the nose with an underlying strength that is so emblematic of Gevrey. On the palate, it had smooth beautiful bright red fruit, a good grip that coated the mouth with an almost ethereal presence, and a long luscious finish with lip-smacking acidity. Really delicious, and it disappeared WAY too fast.
