Maume Gevrey-Chambertin En Pallud 2020


In Stock

“The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin En Pallud is outshone by the regular Gevrey Village at this early stage. That should not detract from a fine wine with its beautiful nose of cranberry and Morello cherries, a touch of cassis and violet. There is a slight grittiness to the tannins and modest depth with impressive backbone towards the finish that just needs a little more precision. Drinking window: 2023-2033. 90 points

Though I could not visit the Domaine this year, I was able to taste some of Maume’s bottled 2020s during the week of the Grands Jours. These wines are well worth seeking out. Readers should be aware winemaking duties are being handed over to Bertrand Maume’s wife, Patricia Siblas, who has ostensibly been making the wines in recent years, and therefore, I expect the high quality to continue. She will be joined by her brother, Richard and Thomas. From the 2021 releases, the wines will be under Domaine Maume-Siblas. You will find few better Gevrey-Chambertin Village 2020s this year.”
