Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Champonnets" 2015, Domaine Des Varoilles

The Bourgoblog team visited this domaine in 2013 and we spent heavily on the 2010s following an entertaining tasting involving two dogs some saucisson sec and a rude South African. Vilified in 30% new oak barrels, this Gevrey 1er Cru has a nose do I aged by ripe raspberry and cherry. There is already a touch of licorice, crunchy berry fruit, good length and it's still fresh. Good to very good but sadly not cheap. Scores 22-24/30 for a Gevrey 1er Cru.
