Cracka Review

Gevrey-Chambertin is where the more 'butch' styles of red burgundies are made. This is quite a modern style as it is quite fruit-driven, and shows red berries and dark plums on the nose, along with some sniffs of florals and earthy savouriness. The palate is medium-bodied and quite juicy, with a touch of herbs, fine tannins, frisky acidity, and quite a smooth, vibrant finish. Great with coq au vin.

Winemaker's Notes

The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvellously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 13 months.

Dark ruby colour. Very refreshing aromas of small berries (bramble fruit) mixed with spices. Generous and punchy. Beautiful aromatic complexity. Tight texture. Structural tannins and well-integrated oak note. Persistent aftertaste.

Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
