A classic Gevrey from a sought-after Côtes de Nuits domaine. Deep inky plum colour, the nose is a choir of decadent dark fruit aromas and liquorice spice. This is a hedonistic and generous wine with ripe supple tannins. Beautifully balanced and entering its drinking window.
A discreet touch of wood sets off earthy and overtly sauvage aromas of wild dark berries, underbrush and humus. The dense, concentrated and powerful flavors possess outstanding size, weight and verve for its level, all wrapped in a beautifully long if rustic finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit appears. This is first-rate and highly recommended provided that you have the patience to let it age because it's going to need it. Outstanding top value. Drink 2026+
The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
