Description

Soft wood sets off the pretty and ultra-fresh aromas of dark currant, spice and distinct earth scents. The sleek and very rich medium weight flavors possess a caressing yet powerful mouthfeel, all wrapped in a saline-inflected finish that offers very fine depth and persistence. This should drink well young but have no problem rewarding mid-term cellaring.

– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 89-91

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes offers up enticing aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, grilled meats, spices and rich soil tones. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and textural, with a sweet and succulent core of fruit that entirely cloaks its melting tannins, concluding with a pure, mouthwatering finish. This is a precocious but superb vintage of Bachelet’s Gevrey that will drink well in its youth and for many years thereafter.

Matured in around 50% new oak, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has (another) gorgeous and pure bouquet with small dark cherries, raspberry preserve and subtle violet notes. The new oak is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red and black fruit, lightly spiced with a slightly confit-like finish. Divine.
