(90-92) Here the wood treatment is a bit more generous and includes a whiff of menthol on the liqueur-like dark berry fruit-suffused nose. The medium weight flavors are notably bigger, richer, denser and more powerful while possessing a velvety mouthfeel as well as outstanding depth and persistence on the youthfully austere finale. This mildly rustic effort is a classic Gevrey and offers 1er level quality.

(90-92) The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Jeunes Rois was more reticent on the nose than Pierre Duroché's other nascent 2016s; however, there is fine complexity and mineralité already locked into this cuvée. Later there is a hint of licorice that adds another layer of complexity. The palate is medium-bodied and sports a caressing texture and a taut line of acidity. There is a spicy vein to this Gevrey-Chambertin, and after departing, the tongue is still fizzing with prenatal energy. I look forward to revisiting this after bottling, because this is a serious village cru.
