The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combe Aux Moines offers up a delicate bouquet of wild berries, cassis, coniferous forest floor and candied peel. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and elegant, with a succulent core of fruit, immensely satiny structuring tannins that caress the palate and impeccable balance. Its a strikingly graceful rendition of Combe Aux Moines, and thanks to its structural finesse, it will enjoy a broad drinking window.
