Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2015

    Bright raspberry red colour. Lots of mulberry and strawberry on the nose, with hints of mocha. An appealingly pure Pinot freshness, with lively sweet fruit flavours, soft tannic structure and excellent persistence on the finish. Fine and classy.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnet has a refined bouquet, less intense than the les Evocelles with brambly red berry fruit, sous-bois and cold limestone scents. I like the detail here. The palate is very well balanced with succulent tannin, harmonious in the mouth with bitter orange and minerals on the linear, focused finish. Very fine, although will it surpass the Evocelles once in bottle? Drink 2017-2032

    Score: 90-92

    A fresh, cool and restrained nose features notes of pomegranate, red currant and floral scents that are liberally laced with both game and earth. The intense and vibrant middle weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality onto the relatively fine but firm finish that delivers excellent length. This is very Champonnets in character which is to say an elegant but tautly muscular Gevrey 1er. Drink 2026+

    Score: 17.75

    This is cool and light and breezy. Easy red fruits. Soft tannins. Inviting and quite relaxed…and at the end a sweetness. Most appealing.

Producer

Domaine Louis Boillot

Louis is the seventh generation of vignerons in Burgundy from a family who is mostly known for their Côte de Beaune wines such as Pommard and Volnay however, several Côte de Nuits appellations including Gevrey Chambertin were added to the repertoire in 1978. Many of these are parcels of extremely old vines, and the wines have a natural concentration and silky persistence. Today Louis vinifies and ages his wines in Chambolle Musigny in the same cellar as his other half, Ghislaine Barthod. In fact, it has been said that his influences have helped create the celestial beauties that have risen from her vineyards. Both are ably assisted by their son, Clément. He has been instrumental in Louis Boillot’s recent purchase of vineyards in Beaujolais, Moulin à Vent, where these skilled Burgundians bring their expertise to the Gamay grape.

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.
