Geantet-Pansiot Le Poissenot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

$169

From a single premier cru parcel planted by Geantet’s grandfather in 1949 in the nose-bleed bleachers of the commune (above Lavaux St.-Jacques and Les Verroilles), the 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Le Poissenot displays a uniquely alkaline, and maritime note in the nose, along with scents of ripe black cherry and roasted game. This presents terrific depth and richness on the palate, offering a veritable butcher shop of carnal delights, including raw beef, salted, smoked pork and long-hung game. Not that fruit is slighted: there is strong, sweetly ripe black cherry throughout, and a malbec-like amalgam of black raspberry, white pepper and cardamom emerges as the wine takes on air. Creamy, rich, sappy, and sleek, this finishes with gum-clinging strength and refinement, invigoratingly saline and brightly black-fruited. A delight already... Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Integrated. Incredible texture. Alluring touch of burg funk on nose. Infinite depth includes game, pure Pinot fruits, both red and blue with balance and finesse. Again please!

Lots of tannins, just a hint of cellar development

Strawberry, cherries & oak on the nose. On the palate a new world profile held in check by the acid and earthiness. No rush to open another for 5 years,
