2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Etelois, Domaine Tawse

This is a very special village lieu-dit. It is sandwiched between two grands crus: Charmes-Chambertin and Griotte-Chambertin. Most people who own vines here bottle it separately, as its character is of such high quality, it approaches premier cru complexity. This has Gevrey’s classical sour cherry density, and a sweet amplitude of fruit on the palate. The fruit was entirely destemmed for this cuvée, and the body of the wine is juicy and flowing. Outstanding.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Etelois is 100% de-stemmed and contains 14.0° alcohol. Despite a touch of reduction, there are some lovely raspberry and blueberry fruit here, laced with pressed violets. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, gentle and caressing with a velvety smooth finish. This is superb.
