Heresztyn Bourgogne 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

An estate founded by a former Polish vineyard worker of Louis Trapet. Domaine Heresztyn has been one of the consistently fine producers in Gevrey Chambertin. However, as Florence Heresztyn increasingly takes the reins, they have clearly reached another level of quality. As Clive Coates remarks: "Now they are amongst the top in the village: elegant, composed, full of fruit, full of definition. A major address these days." These are wonderful glossy precocious wines with eloquent morello cherry and bilberry fruit and a certain stoniness that betokens good ageing potential. Plenty of energy, vinosity and concentration here. The 2001 and 2002s are rich and forward and an hour or two in a carafe eases out spectacular violet aromas and warm toasty fruit. We have a range of vintages now for those of you who like to get vertical. The luminous, lacy Chambolle-Musigny, from two lieux-dits (aux Echanges and aux Badoits) and 65-year-old low-yielding parcels, could be described as moelleux. This would go well with braised duck in red wine, navarin of spring lamb and cheese such as Brillat-Savarin and Citeaux.
