My last day of tasting is – by happy chance – focused on Gevrey-Chambertin, beginning with Domaine Marc Roy and the gorgeous wines from Alexandrine Roy.
Domaine Marc Roy
Lovely, charming 2019 wines from Alexandrine. They are rich and generous, but succeed in keeping the vintage on the cooler side. It is important to note that 2019 was a hot year; the wines can easily end up on warm or even hot side.
Alexandrine by and large has kept the balance, although the white Marsannay is – while charming – on the generous side alcohol-wise.
Magic 2019s from Pierre Duroche
Pierre Duroche has kept his 2019s cool, and has produced some outstanding wines. Bracing, vivid and fresh, there are many highlights in the Duroche cellar this year. Magnificent wines.
2018s from Trapet: keeping the cool and balance
Jean-Louis Trapet has found lovely balance in his wines from the warm and generous 2018 vintage. The biodynamic approach is once again showing its value in this fine line-up.
To end the week I was lucky to get this fine photo of Trapet pere et fils – Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet.
Baden, Jürgen Von der Mark, and then home sweet home!
