Goedhuis, March 2020
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.
Burghound, January 2018,
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+
Created in 1955 by Edmond Geantet, this popular domaine has been run by his friendly and energetic son Vincent since 1989. Now joined by his son and daughter, Fabien and Emilie, the Geantets have built up this domaine into one of the most substantial estates in the Côte de Nuits, with 22 hectares of vines across Gevrey Chambertin and beyond. Their new winery at the edge of the village may not be one of the region’s architectural high points, but it has given them the vital space to vinify at ease. 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. With a generous 10 day cold maceration, the colours are deep and the fruit aromas dark and ripe.
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.
