Varoilles Gevrey-Chambertin “Meix des Ouches” 2016
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.
Burghound awarded 90 points, “This is an exceptionally ripe wine in the context of what is typical for the vintage and one can smell the extended maceration on the liqueur-like aromas of plum, cassis and black cherry. The exceptionally rich, round and velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors coat the palate with sap on the lingering finish.”
