Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Meix des Ouches Monopole Domaine des Varoilles 2017

Domaine des Varoilles combines a number of spectacular vineyards from village to grand cru level. The arrival of Gilbert Hammel in 1990 marked a turning point for the domaine. Gilbert, of Swiss descent, has made Domaine des Varoilles a go-to producer of a succulent, rounded and supremely approachable style of Gevrey-Chambertin. Clos des Meix des Ouches is a miniature 1 hectare monopole - that is, wholly owned by the estate

"The soil here resembles 1er Cru Champonnet, its neighbour, from which it is separated by a narrow road. There is 10% new oak here, as usual. This has bright red berry fruit on the nose, leading into a juicily fruited palate of raspberry, with some dark peppery detailing. The tannins are ripe and nicely supple. Good wine, which will be approachable early. "
