Frederic Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles St Jacques 1er Cru 2021
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
This is aromatically quite similar to the Lavaut St. Jacques with perhaps just a bit less earth and sauvage nuances. The finer but not denser middleweight flavors also flash good minerality and detail on the mildly tangy but lingering bitter pit fruit-inflected finish where a touch of warmth slowly emerges. As is usually the case, this is a wine of finesse.
