THIS is Grand Cru central, with more Grand Crus than any other village in Burgundy. Gevrey combines the best of the Côte de Nuits’ most finessed appellations with the greatest flavor intensity of the most pungent ones. There’s a wine profile and price point for everyone, as long as you want red. No white wine here!
Pour: Denis Bachelet 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
Quintessential. Black cherry, mushroom and tobacco leaf with coca inflections. The tannins are suave, the acidity is vivacious and the texture is succulent.
