Product Description

Monopole. Harmand Geoffroy is the exclusive producer of this 1er Cru which, at 0.45-hectare is the smallest 1er Cru in Gevrey. The vines here were replanted in '88. Nestling right at the opening of the Combe de Lavaux, La Bossière is a very cool, late harvesting site, buffeted by the fresh winds that whistle down the valley. It is this position that defines the ultimate personality of the wine, typically giving it a cool, mountainous feel, tremendous minerality and freshness. In 2015, this is countered by the ripe generosity of the year, so you get the best of both worlds--wonderful succulence and a taut, chiseled finish."This is very ripe yet quite fresh with its layered mélange of liqueur-like raspberry, cassis and violet aromas. The succulent, vibrant and well-detailed medium weight flavors are underpinned by bright acidity on the relatively refined finish that delivers solid length. This is unusually ripe for what is normally a very cold terroir." 90-92 points, Allen Meadows, burghound.com Issue 65
