Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, April 2014,
    Score: 91

    Here the expressive if cool nose is quite spicy with plenty of earth and sauvage characters present on the mostly dark currant and plum aromas. As with many of the wines in the range the mid-palate is generous to the point of being aptly described as lush though the innate minerality of a typical LSJ is markedly present and helps to add lift to the robust, muscular and slightly rustic finish that coats the mouth on the serious finish. This will require a few years of cellaring but should be approachable on the younger side if desired. Drink 2021+

Region

Gevrey-Chambertin

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.
