Domaine HENRI REBOURSEAU Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Fonteny" 2020
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: "The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Fonteny 1er Cru, matured in 80% new oak, has another quite opulent bouquet that is lavished in new oak and whilst attractive, this is slightly obscuring the terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, quite "sexy" dark cherry and cassis fruit. Good tension on the finish although there is a fair bit of new oak to be absorbed." - Neal Martin, Vinous
