2019 Gerard Raphet Les Combottes 'Cuvee Unique' Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru France
A more elegant, airy and slightly fresher nose offers up cool notes of earth, spice, plum and wild red berries. The equally cool and pure middle weight flavors possess a beguiling sense of underlying tension as well as a lovely minerality on the balanced and nicely long finish. This lilting effort is also really quite pretty and has the stuffing to reward a decade of cellaring, perhaps even a bit more.
