Appellation: Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur (Burgundy region)


Grapes: Pinot Noir (100%)


Aromatics: Intense notes of dark chocolate, elegant smokiness and earthiness with blackberries and oak spices.


Palate: This a stunning Gevrey 1er Cru, an excellent example from Clos Prieur vineyards. Beautiful volume in the mid palate, with fleshy dark fruits, followed by an incredible length and persistence with the final terroir vibrancy. This is one of these rare wines that has it all: concentration, finesse and power.


About the wine: Thierry produces only 750 bottles of Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur, made from a unique 70-year-old vineyard.


When to drink: Drink now or in the next 10-15 years.


Service: 15 to 16 degrees C, large Burgundy glass. Decant when enjoying in its youth.


Food match: Boeuf bourguignon, slow cooked stew, duck breast or duck legs.


Jancis Robinson: 16.5/20
