Gevrey Chambertin Mes Favorites Vieilles Vignes Alain Burguet 92 Jg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A cool, pure and exceptionally pretty nose is similar to that of the straight Gevrey but here there is a bit more aromatic complexity. There is excellent precision to the mineral-tinged, delicious and again, slightly more complex flavors that possess solid balance with no warmth...87-90" BH 1/12 "The 2010 old vine cuvée of Mes Favorites is outstanding, jumping from the glass in a complex and quite red fruity mélange of cherries, blood orange, raw cocoa, complex minerality, mustard seed and a deft framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully transparent, with a sappy core of fruit, ripe, suave tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, tangy and beautifully-balanced finish. A superb bottle of 2010 Gevrey!...92+" JG 06/12
