Description

The 2008 Gevrey Chambertin is outstanding - a nice deep core that is now light at the edge, A notably ripe earthy dark berry fruit aromas and rich, stylish and sweet flavours that are even more complex and add the dimensions of power and punch to the remarkably long and explosive finish.

A traditionalist in every sense, Alain Burguet’s love of the ‘Great Outdoors’ sees him tirelessly work his vineyards during the growing season. As yet he is still quite an undiscovered grower, and therefore his prices are rather reasonable, mainly due to the fact he does not have plots in any of the “presitigious” vineyards. The result of low yields and minimum intervention in the cellar, where the wines rest in old oak for over a year and a half, his Gevrey Vieilles Vignes is a complex sturdy wine that would pass off quite easily as a 1er or even Grand Cru in a blind tasting.
