Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Au Closeau" 2007, Drouhin-Laroze

The 2007 vintage combined a very precocious spring with a cool and damp summer resulting in wines that are all marked by the vintage. This "Au Closeau" 2007 is no exception. On the nose it offers very sweet strawberry, cooked damsons, with a halo of floral scents. This contrasts with much brighter flavours of sweet red berries, a light medium body, linear style, fresh. Ideal companion for wood pigeon or pheasant cooked with red currant jelly. Not a steak wine.
