Matured in 100% new oak, the 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has clean and pure blackberry and Bakewell tart aromas on the nose that gradually unfold. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, mineral-driven with fine tension and a keen line of acidity on the structured finish that just needs to manifest more persistence on the aftertaste. Otherwise, this is very fine. (NM)
Bright ruby-red. Tighter and higher-pitched on the nose than the basic village offering, displaying aromas of boysenberry, licorice and violet. A compellingly sweet, bright village wine with the intensity of a premier cru. This impeccably balanced wine finishes with suave tannins and excellent length and lift. The crop level here was a moderate 35 hectoliters per hectare, according to winemaker Frédérique Bachotet. (ST)
This is both aromatically fresher and more expressive with its attractively layered mix of both red and dark berries that is liberally laced with notes of earth, humus and underbrush plus a hint of wood spice. The lush and velvety yet quite muscular medium weight flavors possess slightly better mid-palate concentration along with somewhat firmer supporting tannins on the lingering and well-balanced finale. This robust effort will need at least a few years of bottle age to unwind before it will drink well. *Outstanding*
