50% whole bunch from the old vines. Fine mid purple. There is a certain tension here, some cherry kernel notes, significant intensity with good acidity. The stems give a little lifted tingle at the back. Not massive but fine and with length. **** 90-92/100, Jasper Morris MW.

The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles 1er Cru contains 50% whole bunch. It has a rather broody bouquet, a little introverted at the moment, with dark berry fruit, forest floor and light tobacco scents. The palate is medium-bodied, the whole bunch defining the entry, a little stemmy but with decent depth and plenty of freshness on the spicy finish. One of the best Gevrey’s from the Domaine this year. 91-93/100, Neal Martin.

Subtle floral nuances with notably fine and more mineral-driven middle weight flavours that possess both a lovely texture and underlying tension while delivering fine length on the youthfully austere finale. This too is an excellent Gevrey villages that is firm enough to reward a decade of keeping. Outstanding. 90-92/100, Burghound.

Engaging aroma, with fresh woodland and hints of coffee. Silky, fine tannins. What an elegant and lucid Gevrey. Ripples lightly over the palate with a touch of redcurrant. Top-notch. Delightful. 91/100, Sarah Marsh MW, World of Fine Wine.
