(WA 93-95 points) The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Champeaux was not affected by frost and yielded a good quantity to the surprise of Arnaud Mortet —30 hectoliters per hectare. Matured with 50% whole bunch and up to 70% new oak, it has a generous, almost peppermint-tinged bouquet with great vigor and vivacity. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, good weight and plenty of blood orange-tinged black fruit. It is slightly attenuated right on the finish but this should flesh out once in bottle. This is how to make a great Les Champeaux. - Neal Martin

(VN 91-93 points) Distinctly solaire nose offers chocolatey black cherry and dark raspberry aromas lifted by salty minerality. Thick, silky and moderately sweet, boasting terrific depth of fruit and promising medicinal reserve. Finishes very long and a bit youthfully aggressive but not hot, with an element of opulence that reminded me of a 2015. Arnaud Mortet noted that 2016 was a very good year for the Côteau de Brochon. -- Stephen Tanzer
