Domaine de la Vougeraie Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles 2016

Côtes de Nuits, Côte d'Or, Burgundy, FranceLes Evocelles was Domaine de la Vougeraie's first vineyard back in 1966, and it is now farmed organically and biodynamically. From the very good 2016 vintage, this was fermented by indigenous yeasts before aging in French barriques for 15 months (32 percent new) and then being bottled unfined and lightly filtered. It has a youthful, exuberant nose that combines ripe cherry fruit with savoury, gamey notes and underbrush. The oak brings it all together, and is quite fine. Classic Gevrey character, but with real purity and precision. Medium-bodied, the tannins are fine and supple, making this approachable today but with the potential to age for 10+ years. Only 5258 bottles produced.Tasted: 09 November 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 105.99 BCLS Producer: Domaine de la VougeraieDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
