Aux Etelois Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2013

From magnum. Had it next to the stylistically similar Fourrier Gevrey VV, but this was the better wine for me - it had a little more depth and texture. Started of similarly reductive, but quickly opened up to scents of roses, intense red cherry, and smoky insence. The palate's velvety, mix of red and dark fruits, rich but offers lots of freshness with its crisp acidity. Minerality plays second fiddle at the moment, but is evident in the long spicy finish. I bet this was how it looked like when it was first bottled, so time can only make it better. 1er level for sure!

NB: From WH - This plot is located on the southern side of Griotte-Chambertin alongside the Claude Dugat plot and below the Duroché plot of Griottes-Chambertin. It is quite strange that this vineyard has been classified as village as it’s located so close to the Grand Crus.

@Ceccherini Cristiano Got that write up from Winehog - just for my reference. Aux Etelois, I've only had a couple of times. All Duroche. I reckon it's got the concentration and length to be a lesser 1er each time, but I believe this has much to do with producer. Same as Griotte I guess. It does have the reputation of being a lesser GC, but I reckon in the right hands... It's quite consistent. Same as Latricierws. Producer producer producer! Hahaha.

@Aaron Tan
I 100% agree
I just wanted to mentioned too how important is the terroir
No producer can make an excellent wine out of a bad parcel in any vineyard
I recall Hubert De Montille saying in Mondovino how the terroir is 10 times more important than the vigneron/winemaker
And as an example you think of Rousseau Clos de la Roche where he doesn't really have a top parcel when Dujac or Ponsot do and make a better wine (IMO) than what I consider to be one of the best red wine producer of the Cote de Nuits(I know, the other two are not bad either). Anyway I just follow those lines too, producer, vineyard, parcel, vintage, but it is never easy.
I guess that's what makes it interesting. 👌🙏

@Ceccherini Cristiano Agreed! Man can indeed overcome the factors of earth and nature, but their wisdom and effort can only go so far.

Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2017

Burgundy still rules despite tariffs. The aromatics and perfume in this wine are absolutely stunning. On the nose cherry 🍒 it really jumps at you. In the glass ultra powerful Morello cherries may be over the top. How do they do this?
This is almost too much fruit for me. This has depth but for now it is totally buried in the fruit. I am quite confident that this will be a stunning wine in 5-10 years from now. Now a baby 👶. Should I sell stocks to buy this wine? A shame to drink a wine like this that young - addendum tasty 48 hours later so definitely decant if you drink this now I would say at least 6 hours.

This had lots of energy with rich sappy black cherry, berry fruits, crushed rock, forest floor, dried herbs & floral notes. Med bodied & approachable that will keep developing. — 4 months ago
