Gevrey with Grac(z)e

Graze, The Restaurant, apparently the new hip and happening establishment @ Rochester Park, was the venue for a (by our standards) small tasting of Gevrey Chambertin 1er Crus.

The overwhelming consensus on the food was that it was half decent to average at best. Service was overall pretty weak.

The juice flowed as follows:

The 2002's >

Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Combe Aux Moines
Humbert Freres Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Poissenots
Joseph Roty Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Fontenys
Jean-Louis Trapet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Petit Chapelle
Varoilles Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoilles
Varoilles Gevrey Chambertin 1er La Romanee

The 2003's >

Bruno Clair Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos St-Jacques
Lucien Le Moine Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cazetiers
Pascal Lachaux Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Lavaux st-Jacques

Tasting notes on the wine that made the biggest impression > Fourrier Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Combe Aux Moines 2002 > Youthful looking red hues with a hint of violet. Aromas of beetroot, rootstock, and a shading of lentil. On the palate, cool, clean pinot fruit flavors with a touch of watermelon even. Mid palate - floral notes do a pas de deux with a fine beef consomme. Very suave and elegant on the finish. Impressive.
