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 this distinctively superb Gevrey will no doubt benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring.

Captivating aromas of wild black raspberry minerals and game along with a saline note. Suave and fine-grained on entry then at once saline and sweet in the middle with lovely mounting mineral perfume toward the back. Offers a more pliant texture and silkier tannins than the En Champs suggesting that this very long wine will be drinkable a bit earlier.
