The ever consistent Denis Bachelet makes his village Gevrey from three separate parcels - En Derée, Sylvie and Les Jeunes Rois - all of which are at least 60 years old. This is typically juicy, crunchy and appealing, showing abundant blueberry and bramble fruit, lots of chalky minerality, and stylishly integrated 40% new wood. (TA)
Monsieur Bachelet’s 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin “Vieilles Vignes” is absolutely superb this year, with a beautiful synthesis of deep and sappy fruit coupled to striking minerality. The nose jumps from the glass in an evocative blend of black raspberries, grilled meats, black cherries, toasty oak, a beautiful base of black minerality and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and almost sumptuous on the attack, with great depth in the mid-palate, fine-grained tannins and impeccable focus and grip on the long, complex and sappy finish. I love the backend energy and lift here! (Drink between 2023-2060)
Matured in around 50% new oak, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has (another) gorgeous and pure bouquet with small dark cherries, raspberry preserve and subtle violet notes. The new oak is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red and black fruit, lightly spiced with a slightly confit-like finish. Divine. (NM)
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is also showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis, plums and cherries mingled with sweet soil tones, grilled meats and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and textural, with a velvety attack, lovely purity of fruit and a long, precise finish. (WK)
Soft wood sets off the pretty and ultra-fresh aromas of dark currant, spice and distinct earth scents. The sleek and very rich medium weight flavors possess a caressing yet powerful mouthfeel, all wrapped in a saline-inflected finish that offers very fine depth and persistence. This should drink well young but have no problem rewarding mid-term cellaring. *Outstanding, Top Value*
An inviting combination of oak sweetness and dark-fruit sweetness on the nose. A touch of dark spice. Fresh and super-fine on the palate, concentrated but without excess, lovely balance. Almost cassis-like in fruit character. Incredibly moreish and gouleyant. Supple already and very long. 17/20 points. (JH)
