Guillaume noted this year that Gravains has a very strong vein of limestone in it and the soils are very similar to those in Corton-Charlemagne, which is the primary reason many vignerons with parcels here have them planted to chardonnay. The 2017 rouge from Guillaume is excellent, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of red and black cherries, pigeon, a complex base of chalky soil, woodsmoke, Savigny spice tones and a discreet framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and more reserved in profile than the old vine villages bottlings, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent backend mineral drive, ripe tannins and a long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This will be lovely.

There is both an attractive vibrancy and good volume to the lightly stony medium weight flavors that exhibit good focus on the bitter cherry-inflected and youthfully austere finish. This is textbook Gravains.
