Black cherry and black currant flavors highlight this polished red, which is supple and bright, deftly balanced and lingering on the spicy aftertaste, with a mouthwatering finish. Best from 2015 through 2023. 59 cases imported.
The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes was aged in 60% new oak. Here, I feel the wood is a little pronounced compared to the other crus. The palate has a thick entry with rounded, quite bold tannins. There is good substance here but at the moment I prefer the finesse displayed by the younger vines. This is a square-jawed Gevrey-Chambertin, where I am seeking a little more finesse. Drink 2015-2025.
A hint of oak on the nose. Lots of energy. Pruney fruit. Very sweet. Perhaps lacks a bit of drive. Jancis Robinson
