This comes from seven parcels around the village, including La Justice, Forneaux, and Clos Prieur Bas. It is so precise and lengthy, with a vibrant cherry red fruit that seems to go far beyond what a village usually delivers. It’s one of Mark’s favourites in the cellar, and we can see why. A small, well-judged amount of whole bunch adds just a hint of lift. It is a resounding success in 2020.
The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from several parcels. It has a well-defined bouquet, quite expressive since it had not been racked. The palate is well-defined, the 20% whole bunch nicely integrated, smooth and almost creamy in texture where I am just seeking a little more delineation. I think Tawse made better Village Crus in '20.
