Frédéric Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St.-Jacques 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
This is very pinot in style and particularly aromatically with its pretty and perfumed nose of red and dark raspberry that is laced with floral and soft earth hints. I very much like the underlying tension of the sleek, even silky, middle weight flavors that exude evident minerality on the youthfully austere and mildly warm finale.
Well-defined aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry, rose and stone are the hallmarks of this expressive red. It firms up nicely, yet remains poised and sophisticated, with fruit, tobacco and iron accents lingering on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2042. 100 cases imported.
