Domaine Frédéric Esmonin, Gevrey-Chambertin Griottes Chambertin Grand Cru 1999

Frédérick Esmonin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru 1999

Crimson.  Robust nose: forest floor, Gevrey humus, morello cherry.  Lusty and concentrated fruit.  The tannins are firmly present; they have a touch of astringency.  This will resolve itself.  Finishes detailed and stony with a touch of bitter cherry skin.  A substantial Griottes: it has both typicity and individual character.  Will still improve.  Now – 2030.
