"90+ out of 100…Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Petit Chapelle has a touch more ripeness and precocity than the Clos Tamisot from Damoy: well defined with red cherries mixed with raspberry preserve, again, very refined and detailed. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly stalky entry, a crisp line of acidity, very linear in style with a slightly truncated tinny (reductive) finish that could do with a little more flesh. Give this Gevrey-Chambertin another couple of years in bottle and it will start approaching its impressive performance from barrel. " - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
92 out of 100?...Here too there is a trace of post-bottling reduction so once again I would suggest decanting any bottles that you might be tempted to try young. Otherwise there is a fine sense of verve, freshness and intensity to the appealingly mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess the best depth and length of any of these Gevrey 1ers. Despite the younger vines there is very good mid-palate concentration and phenolic maturity to the impressively refined structural elements and this should amply reward mid to longer-term cellaring. - Burghound
