Gevrey-Chambertin 2001, Fery-Meunier
Deep red cherry colour with some maturity showing. Initial aromas are fairly open and sniff of black cherries, plums and roast pastry crust. Second nose doesn't evolve much but has vague whiffs of dried shitake, plum, and possibly kelp. On the palate the wine has medium acidity, plum and red currant fruit, rounded tannins, and clove spices. The wine is pleasant, fruit-driven, and designed to be drinkable. This is a value-for-money negociant wine which doesn't have much Gevrey typicity or ambition but is fine enough for quaffing.
