Vincent Girardin

Les Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2016

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.

Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir 2015

Raspberry, porcini, classic Gevrey “fishiness”. Dark, commanding and intense. Loaded with the stuffing that separates the best ‘15s from other 21st century vintages. #philipperossignol #gevreychambertin #vieillesvignes — 2 years ago

Clos Prieur Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013


#gevrey #gevreychambertin #pinotnoir #biologic #vinbiologique #primercru Medium ruby
Pronounced primary aromas of red fruits (cranberries, red currants, red cherries and raspberries) and secondary aromas of oak (cedar, smoke and garrigue) there's also a sensation of roasted nuts.
On the palate it's dry, with a tense medium+ acidity that gives it nerve and highlights the red fruits, it was a very cool and difficult vintage. The tannins are medium and smooth and the alcohol is warming, but maintains a medium+ level. It has a medium+ body and is a hearty example of the variety. There are medium+ intensity flavors of red fruits (red cherries, raspberries and red currants) and toasty smoky oak sensations like cedar and sweet pipe smoke and a savory quality. Overall it's very good, it could have been outstanding if it weren't for the unbalance of the acidity and the lack of complexity and length. The finish is like tart cherries and is slightly chewy and needs polish. This wine can definitely age and will most likely be in its prime between 2020-2030.

The fruit has not survived long enough to see the rough tannins and sharp acidity of #1996 give way and soften. #gevreychambertin #josephdrouhin #1ercru #burgundy — 5 years ago
