Vineyards in Brochon supply fruit for four of the five vineyards in this old vine cuvée (the other one is in Gevrey) and it shows in the zip and crunch of the wine. The old vines add depth and texture to the palate, with 40% new wood framing the finish. (TA)
The Harmand-Geoffroy Vieilles Vignes bottling all hails from their parcels on the northern side of the commune and was raised in forty percent new oak this year. The wine was showing beautifully at the time of my visit and seems likely to drink just a tad sooner than the Clos Prieur. The bouquet delivers a fine mélange of sappy black cherries and sweet dark berries, raw cocoa, grilled meats, a touch of bonfire and a lovely base of smoky new wood. On the palate the wine is plush, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with suave tannins and really lovely acidity adding vibrancy and bounce on the long and complex finish. Fine juice.

A deft touch of wood frames the very earthy and quite sauvage notes that is composed mostly of various dark berry fruit elements. There is excellent volume and intensity to the rich, bold and full-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that helps to buffer the notably firm tannins on the beautifully long finish. This equally robust effort is an excellent Gevrey villages but patience definitely required. *Outstanding, Top Value*
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes (which hails from 50-year-old vines on comparatively high ground in the commune of Gevrey on the Brochon side) offers up a brooding bouquet of spice, wild red and black fruit and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is supple, rich and succulent, its tannins cloaked in a concentrated core of fruit. This is the most complete of the domaine's village wines and is an impressive Gevrey-Chambertin. (WK)
