2017 Frédéric Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 'Les Jouises' Vieilles Vignes
Domaine Frédéric Esmonin, from Burgundy’s Gevrey-Chambertain appellation, is a true family collaboration. They have been farming their 10-acres of family vineyards for generations and selling their fruit to the likes of Drouhin, Jadot, and Leroy. In 1988 they began to bottle their own label. Today they are producing consistently high-quality, beautiful wines that represent a great value considering their pedigree. Restrained and pretty while still retaining mouthfilling texture and medium bodied fruit intensity, this has a classic Gevrey nose of raspberries, lavender and flowers. This is approachable young but will improve with mid-term cellaring (5-10 years).
