Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Humbert Freres Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenot 2015

Rated 94 by Vinous Media
Dark red-ruby. Very dark, floral nose exudes scents of cassis, blackberry, violet and licorice. Juicy and imploded, displaying terrific definition but an extremely primary character to its dark fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. This very rocky wine from shallow soil is quite youthfully taut today, with its strong oak element currently drying the tannins. But there's outstanding mineral energy here to support a long and graceful evolution in bottle. This wine can be a bit strict in cooler years like 2010 and 2008, notes Humbert. (Vinous)

The region benefits greatly from a warm and sunny summer climate, which, coupled with the excellent quality soils which typify the region, and centuries of experience and expertise, has led to the region being known all over the world for the excellence of its produce. The majority of grapevines grown here are of the Pinot Noir varietal, which has helped Burgundy become known as the definitive region for elegant and smooth red wines, but Chardonnay grapes and many others are also grown in abundance and used to make both still and sparkling wines.
