Philippe Leclerc is an old school producer, who still gives his wines 24 months in oak, which is becoming rarer in Burgundy. Though he has a reputation for making bold and robust wines, he has been making them in a fresher style with softer and more integrated tannins by incorporating some whole bunches during fermentation.
There is some wood notes on the nose of the 2017,though not enough to be invasive. The supple, round and attractively textured medium weight flavors deliver excellent length. Classic Gevrey from a classic vintage.
Pair with grilled or roast pork, braised beef in sauce,sirloin or rib of beef, Epoisses cheese
