The 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is bursting with energy and sheer verve. Firm yet well-integrated tannins provide the backbone for an expressive core of dark fruit. The wine gains finesse on the mid-palate and finish, but ultimately this needs much more time to blossom. I especially like the drive here. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. (AG)
A slightly more complex if similar nose adds touches of violets and plum to the aromatic mix before introducing vibrant, intense, dense and quite serious flavors that enjoy impressive mid-palate concentration as well as an ample amount of tannin-buffering sap, all wrapped in a lingering and impeccably well-balanced finish. Again, it's rare to see this level of quality for this particular appellation. In a word, terrific.
Medium red. Deep but reserved nose offers very ripe aromas of redcurrant, truffle, chocolate and mocha. Dense, juicy and youthful; needs time to expand on the palate, but has the integrated acidity and finishing grip to benefit from patience. I'd give this classy, lively village wine a good six years to express itself. 91+ (ST)
