Varoilles Gevrey-Chambertin “Meix des Ouches” 2015

$75

The “Clos du Meix des Ouches” is a small monopole at the edge of the town. It’s surrounded by an old wall, which helps block the wind and trap warmth, making its wines particularly round. Today the nose is floral and nicely balanced, with a mixture of violets, pan drippings, ginger, soy, and cherries. The mouth shows perfectly ripened tannins and a long, vibrant finish — we expect it to improve for another decade or two.

Jancis Robinson found it “rather gorgeous,” finding it has “already lots of pleasure but with the tannins to keep it in shape.” Burghound found it “solidly concentrated” and “sleekly textured,” predicting “this attractive effort should drink relatively well early.”
