Gevrey Chambertin, Côte De Nuits

Domaine Faiveley (Joseph Faiveley)

Les Cazetiers Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Dark fruited and oaky. Plenty of stuffing here, but it's just not my kind of red Burg. Blackberries and plums on the nose, with heaps of earthy forest floor character and vanillin oak. The palate is quite concentrated and comes across as sucking on a blackcurrant lozenge. Oaky spice flows from the mid-palate, and finishes meaty with hints of earthy minerals. There's definitely balance and complexity here, but just lacks a little finesse. I guess some might even call this classic Gevrey, but where does Rousseau fit in that definition 🤣 — 16 days ago

Lithe structured and plummy cherry fruit by the fistful. The finish is for days. I could taste it even after a vanilla milk shake dessert. — 8 days ago

Domaine Alain Burguet

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2009

A dark Ruby in colour. Nose was closed. Very dense, brooding and youthful with so much potential. On the palate the Rich ripe berry fruit and earthiness was more apparent with spicy nuances appearing. This will be amazing in another 10 years once it loosens the shackles and probably go on for another 10 years after that. Thanks Mark for the opportunity to taste this beauty. — 7 days ago

Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg

Domaine Georges Mugneret Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1990

Reddish tawny and barely translucent. Notes of cherries, rhubarb, dark soil and a little menthol. Some sois bois. This was more impactful right after opening, then with a few hours of air the fruit faded. Nicely concentrated. Good balance of fruit and structure. — 8 days ago

Estournelles Saint-Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Pop and pour. A medium murky red color. On the nose: black cherry, floral, and toast. Taste: raspberry, minerals, orange peel, little spice, with a medium finish..definitely needs more time...but still enjoying at this Michelin starred San Francisco Thai restaurant. — 3 days ago

Good, but considering that it’s a magnum and directly from the estate I expected it to be epic. Maybe it was never epic. — 8 days ago

The nose is everything from subtle to intoxicating. The fruits are a combination of baked & slightly stewed; blackberries, black sour cherries, black raspberries, black plum, plum, strawberries & haunting blue fruits. Charcoal notes, slightly charred toast, anise to black licorice, black fruit tea, dark fruit cola, dark, mid intensity Asian/Indian spices, alluvial limestone minerals, dry, crushed rocks, wet clay, stones, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and soft vanillin, fresh tobacco notes, leather, barrel shavings, dry underbrush, hints of graphite with dark, red, purple, blue fresh & withering florals.

The body is medium full and simply gorgeous. The mouthfeel is round, sexy and lures you in. Texture is beautifully enticing. The tension, structure, balance and length are ascending to their peak...another 5 years to full peak. The fruits are a combination of baked & slightly stewed; blackberries, black sour cherries, black raspberries, black plum, plum, strawberries, hints of rhubarb, figs, dates characteristics & haunting blue fruits. Charcoal notes, slightly charred toast, anise to black licorice, black fruit tea, dark fruit cola, dark, mid intensity Asian/Indian spices, alluvial limestone & sandstone minerals, dry, crushed rocks, wet clay, stones, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and soft vanillin, fresh tobacco notes, leather, barrel shavings, dry underbrush, hints of graphite with bright, dark, red, purple, blue fresh & withering florals. The acidity is round, fresh, lively and like a warm spring. The finish is; elegant, extremely well balanced, gorgeous and persists like a long tango dance. Simply beautiful in every way. Heady wine.

Hard to believe I paid right around $35 for this upon release.
