Introducing the 2016 Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey Chambertin Champeaux, a magnificent red wine from the esteemed Burgundy region of France. Crafted with precision and expertise by the renowned producer, Harmand-Geoffroy, this wine is a true embodiment of the elegance and complexity that Pinot Noir can offer.

In the glass, this wine exudes a deep, captivating red color that hints at the richness and depth within. The aromas that waft from the glass are nothing short of enchanting, offering a symphony of scents that evolve and entice with every swirl. At first, a touch of reduction is detected, but with gentle coaxing, it unfurls to reveal a breathtaking aromatic constellation. Notes of sappy cassis and dark berries dance alongside enticing hints of roasted meats, espresso, and dark soil tones. The bouquet is further enhanced by a delicate smokiness and a well-integrated framing of nutty new oak.

On the palate, the 2016 Champeaux is a pure and full-bodied wine, showcasing a rock-solid core that speaks to its exceptional quality. The transparency of flavors is remarkable, allowing each nuance to shine through with clarity. Fine-grained tannins add structure and texture, while excellent backend energy brings vibrancy to the wine's focused and complex finish. It is a true testament to the potential of Champeaux and exemplifies the artistry of Harmand-Geoffroy.

Esteemed wine critic, John Gilman, awarded this exceptional vintage a well-deserved score of 93 points. He marveled at the wine's evolution in the glass, noting its beautiful aromatic complexity and rock-solid core. Gilman proclaimed it a superb example of Champeaux in the making, leaving no doubt about the wine's exceptional quality.

Another respected critic, Burghound, also recognized the merit of the 2016 Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey Chambertin Champeaux, awarding it a score of 92 points. While acknowledging the presence of reduction, Burghound found it to be more of a muted influence rather than a dominant feature. With decanting, the wine revealed a lovely sense of tension, mineral-infused flavors, and firm, dusty tannins. The focused, linear, and balanced finish further enhanced the wine's appeal.

This wine is a true gem from the Burgundy region, offering an exceptional expression of the terroir and the skill of the producer. With an alcohol percentage of 13.0% and a closure of cork, it promises to age gracefully for years to come. Whether enjoyed now with proper aeration or cellared for future exploration, the 2016 Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey Chambertin Champeaux is a wine that will undoubtedly captivate and delight all who experience its allure.
