A big red, rich in texture, laced with black cherry, pomegranate and violet notes, showing hints of iron and earth. Features a solid structure underneath and finishes long and sappy.
(Bouchard vinifies 10.4 hectares of village vines in Gevrey, and does the vineyard work for just over half of this total; fermented with 30% whole clusters): Bright red-ruby. Complex aromas and flavors of medicinal black cherry, mocha, spices and earth. Sweet but restrained in the mouth, with lovely spicy, herbal lift energizing the mid-palate. Very good, solid village wine in the making. (ST)
An unobtrusive application of oak surrounds the cool but ripe aromas of black raspberry, earth and violets. There is the same lovely sense of energy and detail to the medium-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the seductively textured, complex, balanced and impressively persistent finish. This is a fine villages and well worth considering.
Smells spicy, warm and generous, somehow comforting. Drier on the palate, more savoury and upright and darker fruited. Much less generous but there's harmony and balance. (JH) 16.5/20
The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from 10.4 hectares of out-sourced grapes, their own team working the vineyards. It has a commendable raspberry and crushed strawberry bouquet that is straightforward and nicely delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, nicely judged acidity and a harmonious, easy-drinking finish. Fine. (NM)
