Maume-Siblas Gevrey-Chambertin En Pallud 2021


In Stock

“The 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin En Pallud comes from a 0.66-ha parcel albeit with a number of missing vines that are gradually being replaced. It is often one of my picks from the Domaine and indeed the appellation and this is another to add to the canon of over-performing vintages. It has a wonderful, very engaging nose with brambly red fruit, undergrowth and touches of orange blossom – so seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, pixelated like I found the 2020 twelve months ago with a finish that is detailed and surfeit with tension. This year, the En Pallud is a significant step up from the Village. Crystalline. Drinking window: 2024-2036. 91-93 points

It is a brief visit to Domaine Maume, but definitely worth it, just to taste their consistently over-performing Gevrey-Chambertin En Pallud. These wines were made by Bertrand Maume, though duties have been transferred to his wife, Patricia Siblas, who has overseen the production since 2017, as well as her own label, a couple of examples included in this report. As I mentioned before, she will be aided by her two sons henceforth. She tells me that all the cuvées are whole bunches, not that you can tell.”
