AM=92 Outstanding! A spicier but even more restrained nose combines notes of red and dark currant fruit with those of rose lavender, violet and game. This is also quite ripe but there is a lovely sense of freshness to the concentrated, muscular and richer medium weight flavors that possess a seductive mouthfeel while delivering fine length on the relatively powerful and sappy finish. This is an interesting wine texturally as the mid-palate is plump and round yet the finish is serious and mildly austere. Patience again advised. AG=90 The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux 1er Cru has a delightful bouquet with red cherry, crushed strawberry and light sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, juicy and generous with blood orange and a smear of marmalade towards the finish that perhaps does not quite deliver the complexity promised by the aromatics. Otherwise, this is a fine Champeaux.
