Still a very robust wine. Not in the least past its prime. There’s a lot of fruit left, but there’s also a lot of oak., even after 26 years. This has dried out the wine a little bit. Don’t make too much out of my criticism. The wine is very enjoyable, so the bottle was finished without any complaints from my friends at the table.

Beautiful nose. Gorgeous well balanced structure. Powerful dark fruit with a solid mineral base. I imagine how it would have been had i given the bottle a few more years to age let alone a few hours to breath. Bottle 20 of 290. I might go back for another one or two. ##thankgivinginparis #geverychambertin — 11 days ago
Rich crimson in colour- quite dark for a 14 year old Premiere Cru but it is from Gevrey Chambertin. Spicy aromas with ripe cherry and some violet. On the palate ripe red fruits but unfortunately some coarseness and rusticity - lacking in balance. Expected more from the vintage, the vineyard and the producer. Still a little tight and contained. Jancis Robinson’s drinking window to 2025 might make a difference. With the benefit of hindsight would have left this for a few more years. — 20 days ago
Pretty serious for a village wine, with some good age on it. On the nose, dried roses and cherries, a little spice. In the mouth, expansive flavors of red fruit, cherries, forest floor and spices. Good acid, long finish. Very well made. — 2 days ago
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. — 18 days ago
