The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru les Champeaux is a broody little bugger on the nose and even with vigorous swirling it only reluctantly reveals enticing marine scents. The palate is medium-bodied with taut tannins. There is very good minerality here and a strong saline finish. Give this 3-4 years in bottle because it clearly has the substance to evolve over the long-term, but may end up one of Jean-Marie's more masculine Premier Crus.

Tasting note: Here the expressive nose is slightly more deeply pitched if otherwise compositionally similar to that of the Goulots. As it usually does this trades a bit of finesse in favor of a bit more volume on the equally mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that also possess fine detail and excellent vibrancy on the firm and lingering finish. I would describe this as having slightly more Gevrey character than the Goulots with moderately firmer tannins as well. Lovely juice though patience required.
