Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2015, Domaine Des Varoilles

This classic from the broad range of Gevrey premiers crus flies the flag for the phenomenal quality which can be achieved in 2015. A nose which already offers complexity with notes of graphite, geraniums and rose hip progressing to raspberry and cherry. Fine mature tannins, chewy cherry, great minerality and all round phenolic ripeness which is a key characteristic of 2015. Promises much imbibing pleasure from 2020... yes folks, no need to wait too long in this vintage which reminds me of both 1989 and more particularly 1959. Scores 25-27/30 for a Gevrey grand cru.
