Maison Maume Gevrey-Chambertin 2010

MAison Maume, AOC/AOP Gevery-Chambertin, Cote de Nuits, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France, 2010

A village wine, sandwiched between premier cru and regional wines.

This wine: varietal pinot noir, natural cork closure, 13.5%, Wine Society en primeur, about £20 (2014)

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, pale intensity ruby, showing tears.

Nose: clean on the nose, of medium (+) intensity, developing, with moderately high-toned aromas of red currant and spicy red cherry; then dried rose bud, with a hint of violet, followed by darker berry hints of ripe blackberry, and a savoury note on the end.

Palate: a dry wine, with medium (+) acidity, fine-grained ripe medium tannins, medium alcohol and a medium (-) body, medium intensity, a smooth texture, with flavours of black berry and ripe black plum boiled sweets, a hint of liquorice, and a savoury note. A medium length with a clean black berry finish.

Quality: a good quality wine, body is a little on the thin side for the acidity and tannins, and flavour concentration is similarly lacking; interesting on the nose with some complexity and signs of development, but fading on the mid-palate, all following through to the medium length.

Readiness for drinking/potential for ageing: drink now, not suitable for further aging.
