Quivy Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru “Corbeaux” 2013


Quivy’s Gevrey Chambertin 1er cru comes from the “Corbeaux” vineyard, perched on the slope west of the town center. Quivy’s 1er cru vines were planted in the 1950s, and today produce wines with remarkable depth and intensity. We had flagged the 2013 Corbeaux for long term aging, but on the advice of a customer opened a bottle last night and were pleasantly shocked at its drinkability.

The Corbeaux today is seductive and remarkably elegant. The classically Burgundian nose shows dark cassis fruits, with woodsy notes of blackberry and black pepper. The mouth is deep and silky, showing intense old-vine fruit, roasted cherries, and cinnamon. The tannins are smooth, intense, and deeply concentrated — an exceptionally fine and elegant red Burgundy.
