The 2016 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes was only slightly touched by the frost. It has a perfumed bouquet with black cherries, crushed strawberry, a touch of soy and undergrowth, again, quite complex, although I might prefer the vivacity and nonchalance of the Côtes de Nuits Villages. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannin and hints of blood orange on the entry mixed with black cherries and blueberry, leading to a satin-like, utterly charming finish that leaves you begging for the next sip.

"A satin-like, utterly charming finish that leaves you begging for the next sip.” – Wine Advocate

The wines of Denis Bachelet are not well-known for one simple reason - this Domaine is so tiny! At a mere 4 hectares, it has been ran solely by Denis Bachelet since 1983. The wines are elegant and focused, and the care taken in the vineyards and in the cellar shows in every bottle. This is truly one of the most exciting and delicious wines we have tasted this year. This delivers an outstanding value, and even if the wine cost twice as much, we’d still be giving it the same accolades! This Gevrey-Chambertin has us reeling. You’ve got to try a bottle…or a case!
