Lot #230. Bruno Clavelier Gevrey Chambertin Les Corbeaux Vieilles Vignes 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92+ JG.
"The 2016 les Corbeaux from Domaine Clavelier is very red fruity this year, which comes as a bit of surprise, as I normally think of this vineyard as producing a very black fruity version of Gevrey. The wine is excellent, delivering a superb aromatic constellation of wild strawberries, cherries, complex minerality, lovely spice tones, a bit of spicy oak and a topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and very elegant in personality, with a sappy core, suave tannins and impeccable focus and grip on the long, complex and vibrant finish. A beautiful bottle of Corbeaux in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #74, Apr 2018
Provenance: The Castle Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $120
