2014 Gerard Seguin Gevrey Chambertin Craipillot 1er Cru Magnum
"Domaine Gerard Seguin Gevrey Chambertin 1er cru Craipillot 2014 was awarded 2 stars (Remarkable) and the Coup de Coeur one of the highest honors in wine in France by Guide Hachette de Vins. This guide tastes all wines blind without bias. Guide Hachette de Vins is France's best-selling wine guide and one of France's oldest. The Guide Hachette des Vins is considered to be France' most authoritative guide and commonly referred to as the bible of the French wine. The Guide Hachette uses blind tasting panels to evaluate wines by appellation. Each year 40,000 wines are tasted blind and rated by experts. Blind tasting sessions composed of a panel of wine professionals (enologists, wine merchants, wine brokers, sommeliers).
From a .70 ha parcel though part of the facilities are built on another .14 ha portion; Seguin is the largest owner. A perfumed, cool and airy nose reflects layered aromas of assorted red berries that displays hints of earth, spice, game and humus. There is an equally refined mouth feel to the delicious and vibrant medium weight flavors that are shaped by pliant yet reasonably firm tannins on the lingering finish. This understated and harmonious effort should be approachable young yet reward up to a decade of cellar time." -Importer
