Wine Advocate | Rating:The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is being raised in around 50% new oak. It has a refined bouquet, quite precise and tightly coiled at first, but unrolling with rose petal-tinged red berry fruit, fine mineralite and charm. The palate has plenty of sappy red and black fruit on the entry, a keen line of acidity, fine tannin and palpable density towards the finish. Certainly there is good substance here and there is a lovely touch of white pepper on the aftertaste. This is just a lovely, lovely wine in the making.Drink Dates: 2018-2030Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
