"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru comes from the 23-year-old vines within Chambertin Grand Cru and is completely de-stemmed. It has a well-defined, focused bouquet of vivid black and red fruit laced with crushed stone and light earthy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, a little saline in the mouth, and gently grippy toward the finish. It feels tight at the moment, showing a little force on the finish rather than a natural flow, but it should mellow with time."
