1995 Dominique Laurent Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Champeaux"

SKU #1257719 89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Whole cluster fermentation was used on the dark-ruby-colored Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux. It offers sweet red and black berry aromatics and an intensely ripe, jammy, viscous, full-bodied flavor profile packed with plummy concentrated fruit. Well-delineated and structured, it possesses ripe, round tannins in its admirable finish. Projected maturity: 2002-2009. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided. (PR) Inner quote mark (6/1997)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is now showing pronounced secondary fruit aromas and plenty of Gevrey earth followed by spicy, sexy, structured and impressively intense flavors plus excellent length. There is some wood in evidence but it would be acceptable to most burgundy lovers. A solid showing and this is holding up better than most of Laurent's wines once they pass 6 to 7 years of age. Inner quote mark (10/2003)
