Domaine Frédéric Esmonin, Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 2012

Esmonin Prieur 2012

Monsieur Touton Selection, Ltd., New York NY.

Bright ruby.   More clay here, from vines beneath Mazis and these are rarely the most intense or mineral examples: sometimes it can just be about the fruit.  Rococo in style; plush flavors run to mytille, vanilla-bean and kir.  Sweet on entry, rich but fresh, firming up nicely on the finish, with focus.  Tannins are phenolically ripe.  Now – 2020+.
