Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir

An integrated and complex nose. The palate was lively but was drying out on the mid palate. Some sweet fruit balanced with fantastic earthy notes. Great length and a pleasure to drink with food. On its last leg. #josephdrouhin #grandcru #pinotnoir #charmeschambertin #gevrychambertin #burgundy #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

This #chambertin unfortunatly never developed into anything too exciting. There was balance and strength but nothing to elevate it to a truly great level. #grandcru #pierrebouree #gevrychambertin #cotedenuits #burgundy #pinotnoir #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2005

Still a noble structure but I guess it is too old now to be enjoyed. There's this harshness that doesn't allow any fruit or savoury notes to be perceived. Was it poor cellaring? Maybe the status of the terroir was it for early consumption? I'll never know.

Tasted blind and was unimpressed. This wine lacked concentration, excitement, and complexity. A very gritty palate and short finish. #gevrychambertin #burgundy #pinotnoir — 5 years ago

Needs lots of time. The nose and palate were complex and the fruit was starting to get delicious but the structure is still very firm. #claudedugat #charmeschambertin #gevrychambertin #grandcru #cotedenuits #burgundy #pinotnoir #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

A dusty wine with edgy tannins and tough acid. The fruit was interesting but the balance was lost. #chambertin #louistrapet #gevrychambertin #cotedenuits #burgundy #pinotnoir #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

Domaine Marchand Freres

Aux Etelois Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2012

Aged beef, smoke, dirty, earthy mushrooms, toasted sesame, lighter mouthfeel that gets downright twisted into a graphite and cran point to scrawl in a charred cedar script the graffiti of Gevry Chambertin. An underripe grape and almost lemon zest on lime and lemongrass with a minerally shale and chalky clay interplay. Much too young to enjoy now, but the seared tuna and marinated portobello mushroom with quinoa and heirloom beets was calling for an earth mama of just these proportions. Missed it by a few years. But gonna enjoy the next one profusely!! #burgundy #bourgogne #pinotnoir #GevryChambertin — 6 years ago
