The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin "Ostrea" comes from three parcels on unique fossil-rich limestone soils. It has a very composed and harmonious bouquet: joyful blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, hints of orange sorbet and orange rind emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin. There is real succulence here, hints of blue fruit lending it an almost Marsannay-like character towards the terroir-driven, mineral-led finish. This is excellent.
This is aromatically similar to the straight Gevrey cuvée with the exception that it is more restrained and even more floral-suffused. There is a beguiling sense of energy to the beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that are more mineral-driven on the racy, dusty, sappy and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is an excellent Gevrey villages though note that it will require at least some patience as it's presently quite firm. Recommended.
