Robert Parker – 91
The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin En Champs has a smooth, harmonious, latte-tinged bouquet with ample red berry fruit, if not quite the pedigree of the best En Champs that I have tasted in this vintage. The palate is well balanced with slightly chewy tannin, impressive depth with those touches of bell pepper, complemented by cranberry and pomegranate notes, easing back gently toward the finish with a twist of orange rind. Very fine.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026
