From 60+ years old vines. A very good Bourgogne despite the challenge of the vintage. Elegant and fresh character. Complete. Some sap, herbal notes. Ripe tannins and healthy acidity. I have tasted more disappointing wines from this vintage at villages or 1er cru level. A great surprise!

Months ago I swigged glass via Coravin and wasn't to excited about this wine. Today it's pretty frigen sexy. The nose is still very heavy on the graphite but the texture mouthfeel allure of this wine is coming around really really nice. Serious stuff here.

There is a smokey, herbaceous inflection reminiscent of the disastrous 2008, but the richness and purity of fruit underneath prevails.

Easily the worst bottle of Burgundy tasted maybe ever. I had read this bottling was a disaster and auctioned 2 bottles based on reviews. This bottle is a nightmare. Embarrassing bottle for a Producer lauded as cult.

Day 2:
Medicinal aromas still pervasive. Some red fruit on palate, but still not appetizing. Issues regarding 2008 vintage chez Bachelet have been mentioned. The Gevrey-Village VV '08 is an enjoyable wine, but this CdV '08 is a head scratcher.
