Goedhuis, December 2021
From 70-year-old vines on the Brochon slopes, this Gevrey shows the deep richness that comes from great old vines. Dark opaque colour, with an array of aromas from blackberry to coffee bean and vanilla. This high-class village cuvée has a smooth, full palate and luminous freshness.
Matthew Jukes, January 2022,
This is one of the most alluring Gevreys I have tasted, and the immediate impact and richness of the fruit notes are heady and engaging. GP’s Vieilles Vignes cuvée has always been a hidden gem, and in 2020 it is fantastic, and it is sure to drink early, too.
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.
