Maison Louis Max Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur 2012, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: Red

Alternative selection for: Episode 11

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

This is one for earlier drinking as 2012 was known for having softer, more pliable tannins than normal. This is noticeable in a wine like Gevery Chambertin that’s famous for its structure and weight. I last had this not with a main course, but just with cheese. All locally French, of course. But the soft, ripe red and black forest fruit, earthiness and grace all worked wonderfully.
