Domaine Jean-Luc & Eric Burguet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Mes Favorites, Vieilles Vignes 2015

Grape(s)          :  Pinot Noir

Description     :

"From 18 parcels in vineyards situated in Brochon and the northern sector of Gevrey with a few to the east that average approximately 60 years of age; these include Les Corvées, Reniard, Jouise, Sylvie, Champs Perriers, Carré Rougeaud, Combe de Lavaut, Fourneau, Murots, Billard and Creux Brouillard

   This is decidedly more aromatically reserved with its nose of somber dark berry fruit, spice, game and earth scents. As is always the case, there is more size, weight, concentration and underlying material to the muscular flavors that culminate in a firm and backward but not hard or even youthfully austere finale. This built-to-age villages is worth checking out."-BH'89-91

"The vines here are 70 years old on average, spread across 30 plots. The wine has a dense, rich purple in colour, with succulent, lively, dark red-fruit notes on the nose. Similarly gorgeous fruit completely fills the mouth, making it sensual and delicious. Drink 2020-2027."-Jasper Morris MW, Wine Buyer
