Gevrey-Chambertin fremstår funklende rubinrød i glasset. Duften er rig på ung bærfrugt med nuancer af hindbær, solbær og et strejf af skovbund. Smagen er virkelig godt struktureret med en superb balance mellem moden frugt og runde tanniner. Eftersmagen er rig på saft og kraft - en flot og finesserig Gevrey-Chambertin som vil begejstre enhver med hang til stor Bourgogne.
Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Sweet, perfumed and impeccable, the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes stands out for its inner perfume, silky fruit and exceptional overall balance. Blue/purple fruit, hard candy, violets and sweet spices flesh out in the glass. The Vieilles Vignes is pliant and generous, yet it also has plenty of energy as well. It is one of the many highlights in this range. The Vieilles Vignes emerges from a parcel in Champs Perriers planted in 1928 .
North of village, at the bottom of Champerrier plus a bit from Combe du Bas, planted in 1928. 10,000 vines/ha. This came from his father. Purely a coincidence that it was planted same year as the Aux Échezeaux from his mother. Fine and with great line and freshness. Chewy end. Finishes a little suddenly.
From vines in the north of the appellation, the 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a beautiful orange zest and rose petal scented, very feminine bouquet that opens gloriously in the glass. The palate is medium- bodied with rounded tannins, fine structure with an appealing, slightly foursquare "correct" finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is an appealing, "studious" village cru that would prefer not to be glugged
Bright medium red. Explosively ripe aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and dried flowers came across as almost roasted following Fourrier's line-up of 2013 samples. Then sweet and lush on the palate, with superripe flavors of dried red fruits and flowers showing a bit less nuance than I recall finding a year ago. This large-scaled village wine finishes with substantial slightly rough tannins that call for a couple years of patience. - Stephen Tanzer
