Varoilles Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru “Clos des Varoilles” 2016
The Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru “Clos des Varoilles” is a powerhouse of a red Burgundy. Grown in a 6 hectare vineyard (enormous by Burgundy standards), the wine shows grand-cru level intensity. Our notes show dark cassis fruit in the nose, along with licorice and gingerbread spices. In the mouth is enormous and very long — the tannins are bold and bursting, a sign that the wine will live for decades to come.
Allen Meadows (Burghound) awarded 93 points, finding “aromas of plum liqueur, black raspberry, warm earth and a touch of the sauvage. There is excellent richness to the bigger and more powerful medium weight plus flavors that are at once concentrated and quite serious while flashing evident minerality on the slightly warm mineral-inflected finish.”
