The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Jouises" Vieilles Vignes underwent ageing in slightly less new oak than the regular Vieilles Vignes at 25%, and includes 55% whole bunch fruit. It has a crisp and well-defined bouquet with hints of crushed rose petal infusing the red berry fruit—cranberry and a hint of juniper. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, something almost a little Oriental here, a tang of hoisin tincturing the finish that feels harmonious and sustained in the mouth. This is an involving Gevrey-Chambertin that will age with style.
Here too subtle wood is present on the cool, pretty and layered nose of various red berries, rose petal, spice and a touch of newly turned earth. There is an equally cool and restrained feel to the more obviously mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that culminate in palate coating and slightly more structured finale. This too is worth considering.
