Thursday (November 15th 2018) offered the possibility to attend Le Roy Chambertin, a annual tasting held in connection with the Hospice de Beaune auction – in Gevrey Chambertin and by the producers of Gevrey.
Most producers are attending generously providing cask samples of some of their wines – this year the 2017 vintage. Thanks a lot to all the people supporting this and arranging the event.
It’s a lovely arrangement and the perfect opportunity to taste a wide range of Gevrey.
Finding the new and improving
I use these events to find new and improving producers, rather than trying to make a wide range of tasting notes.
So positive selection – find the good stuff … And never disregard a producer or a wine barely on a poor barrel sample.
The positive selection from Le Roi Chambertin
I found many fine wines at Le Roi Chambertin – 2017 is a delightful vintage … and I already tasted some of the wines there.
Here are a few known or less known:
Domaine Tawse/Domaine Marchand Tawse – lovely wines – I tasted the range in early June 2018 … and they are just delightful .. both the Lavaux and the Mazis-Chambertin are well worth collecting.
Domaine Cecile Tremblay offered a taste of the Chapelle-Chambertin – needless to say … lovely wine in the making – a lovely and actually relatively forward wine.
The Faiveley lineup showed very well – I have more on the Faiveley wines in a separate article – the Clos des Issarts, the Clos de Beze and the Cazetiers are showing delightfully.You need to login as a premium subscriber to read the rest of this article.
