2006 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combe aux Moines

 

This wine needs good aeration. Had it over a few hours and just got better by the minute. Decant it for 2 hours at least and it will reward you.

Saturated ruby red color. The wine evolves on the nose as it breathes. It is rich in red fruits when it’s initially uncorked but, as it breathes, it starts to develop more complexity showing coffee, earth and spices while bright red and black cherry and strawberries stay on the background. Medium to full bodied, it has enough extraction to please, well structured, balanced, silky on the palate, showing again good complexity and a medium to long finish, with earthy red fruit flavors. It just got better and better with time, the final glasses being the best. (90-91/100)
