Maison Roche de Bellene Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St-Jacques 2010

Maison Roche de Bellene Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaut St.-JacquesBeautiful deep, violet cherry core; slight reduction, tart berries, Asian spices, oak and baked cherry tart nose ; tart cherries, vanilla cream, sweet cinnamon on the palate; smooth, velvety tannins, very good acidity, medium plus finish. Needs time for the oak flavours to integrate further but seriously, this is one hell of an easy wine to drink in its youth, especially with some greasy, artery clogging American style pizza (that’s what I had on a dull Wednesday night)!
