Maison Champy Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2009

I thought this was a pretty good négociant village Gevrey-Chambertin from the 2009 vintage.  The wine's a medium intensity ruby in colour, bright in the glass, and with tears evident.  Its aromatics are of medium intensity and developing aromas of tobacco, clove, plum, charred wood, a little bit of volatile acidity (varnish) and even some rubber.  The palate is dry with balanced acid, soft tannins, medium body and flavours of tobacco, clove, plum and wood.  It's a good quality wine due to its balance and the complexity of flavours on offer of tobacco, clove, plum and charred wood, which together gave the wine a savoury note, and some typicity reminding of the Côte de Nuits.  Overall, this is pretty good value for the price and ready to drink now.  Good
