Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(AM=87-89) This is also relatively elegant and while there is ample Gevrey earth in evidence on the ripe red pinot fruit laced with game and underbrush aromas, the nose still comes across as refined as do the rich, round, supple and attractively detailed medium-bodied flavors where the supporting acidity does a good job of framing the flavors in sharp relief. A quality villages. (RP=89) Smoked meat and (for its vintage) surprising juiciness of dark berries inform the Ponsot 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvee de l¡¦Abeille, whose sap and invigorating salinity carry through a truly lip-smacking and uplifting finish. While this lacks quite the exuberance of the 2008, it is remarkably bright, savory, and handsomely lean for its vintage, and I would not hesitate to plan on enjoying it for another 6-7 years.
