DOMAINE ROTY GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN CHAMPS CHENYS 2016
These are very old vines, bordering Charmes-Chambertin and replanted in 1934, with some remaining vines dating from 1920. A number of different parcels throughout the lieu-dit go into this wine, some adjacent to Charmes-Chambertin. The vine age is between 30 and 80 years. An incredible density and sweetness of dark berried fruit here, this is supple and almost decadent in its richness. Alongside this tender fruit is a firm skeleton of tannin however, which shapes and guides the palate through to a long, focused finish.
