Robert Parker – 90
The 2013 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru les Poissenots which comes from a south-east facing 0.5-hectare of vines planted in 1959, has a ripe, candied bouquet with fresh blueberry and marmalade scents infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine structure, good acidity and a backward, but focused finish. This feels a little taciturn at the moment but there is fine tension here. However, it feels slightly out-classed by its fellow premier crus this year.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030
