Neal Martin, December 2015,
The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin Villages, which sees around 50% new oak, has a taut, slightly reserved, perhaps slightly earthy bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, light tannin and a finish that like the Bourgogne Rouge was showing a little malic, and was missing substance.
Burghound, January 2017,
A moderately earthy and sauvage-scented nose offers up additional notes of both red and dark fruit along with humus nuances. There is good energy and delineation to the middle weight flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the firm and ever-so-mildly austere finale. This will need a few years of bottle age to round off the structure a bit more. Drink 2020+

(bottled in March): Bright dark red Aromas of blackberry, raspberry, flowers, earth and spicy oak Juicy, sappy village wine with dark fruit flavors complemented by salty minerality Tickles the salivary glands on the finish but this wine needs a couple years to integrate its firm tannins I found this a bit rustic from barrel but today it's a classic Gevrey villages. Drink 2021-2027
Domaine Claude Dugat
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.
