Sometimes you don’t need an excuse to open a bottle of #gevreychambertin. Vincent Girardin’s 2016 effort here is lovely. Decanted for 30+ minutes and tasting notes recorded over the next day as bottle opened up in wine fridge, sipping out of Burgundy glasses. Delicate aromas of cherry preserves, tobacco leaf and sandalwood. Plenty of weight on the palate, hints of licorice, cola nut, a wave of cherry and lingonberry with lush acidity on the finish and gossamer tannins trailing off into a mouth smacking long finish. Those dark fruit and tobacco notes plus the acidity paired well with wood fired turkey pepperoni pizza, believe it or not. It’s humbling to confirm the hundreds of years of hype are justified with the finer wines of #bourgogne.

Delicious. Smooth. Flavorful. Classy. Delicate but lively. Lovely. — 5 days ago
More complexity with age. One of those wines where you know from the first sniff that you are in for a treat. About a year and a half since my last btl, and very much in a sweet spot. On the nose: vanilla, soft honey, lime, wet stone, soft struck match...then the citrus closes in and you get dense lemon lime. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon, lemon oil, wet stone..great density...and a long finish. Just lovely. — a month ago
Needed air, this is a very young wine, opened up to dark fruits, very generous and full bodied palate, rich and wide, the texture is silky and almost thick, nice bottle as is but will wait for the others in this vintage.
Très jeune, a eu besoin d’air, fruits noirs, bouche généreuse, assez pleine et riche, texture veloutée et presque dense, très bien. 89-90

One of my favourite wines. Tremendous, intense nevertheless subtle Burgundy. An outstanding wine. — 16 days ago
