Goedhuis, January 2014
One of Gevrey’s highest vineyards just below the forest, this has produced a succulent and full wine, with bright fresh fruit flavours and appealing, crisp, crunchy red berry fruit flavours. Nice and sweet on the finish.
Burghound, January 2014,
An ultra-elegant, reserved and exceptionally cool nose of airy red currant, wet stone and dried floral notes introduces textured and intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a wonderful sense of underlying tension. This too possesses dense but strikingly fine tannins that coat the palate on the dusty, long and mildly austere finish. Lovely juice that is beautifully balanced. Drink 2024+
Jancis Robinson, January 2014,
Fabulous richness and fruit power on the nose, with a generous brush of tannin and good acidic structure. Flamboyant – violets, spice, earth. Punches above its weight. Drink 2016-2030
Taking its name from founders Edmond Geantet and Bernadette Pansiot back in 1954, this domaine has grown from 7 to 22 hectares under the direction of their son Vincent Geantet and his children Fabien and Emilie. Having outgrown their historical cellars, they invested in a new winery, and their wines show all the advantages that this additional space provides. Traditionally, they de-stem 100% of their fruit and allow the must a few days of cool maceration prior to fermentation starting, which enhances the colour and aromatic content of their wines. Through a combination of old vines (plenty of centenaries in their vineyards), sumptuous fruit concentration and generous new oak they make a hedonistic style of Burgundy.
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.
