Domaine Tawse, Gevrey-Chambertin, Saint-Jacques, Premier Cru 2016

Grape(s)          :  Pinot Noir

Description     :

"Very ripe aromas and flavors of black raspberry and smoked meat are complicated by a Mazis-like rocky quality as well as some roasted torrefaction. Wonderfully sweet, concentrated, thick wine with the integrated acidity to give it excellent definition and cut. Finishes quite dry and classic, with subtle persistence. I love the balance here between warm and cooler elements. Bernard Maume retained ownership of this vineyard, and Marchand-Tawse has a métayage arrangement under which they do all of the vineyard work and vinification and return one-third of the bottles."-Vinous'94
