Critical Acclaim: 92 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Tasting Notes: "The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin "Ostrea" has a more complex bouquet than the regular Gevrey Village cru, leaning a little more to the red side of the fruit spectrum than the black, with chalk and limestone scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, a fresh line of acidity, quite pure in the mouth with a silky smooth finish that lingers. I love the mineralité here."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
About the Wine: The Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is a bottle that comes from four different parcels around the village of Brochon, with some of the vines going back all the way to 1919. The name Ostrea refers to the oyster shells found in the parcels designated for this cuvée.
Varietal: Pinot Noir.
