    November 22, 2014 - Medium red, with the slightest hint of a brown rim. Nose was very minerally, some wet rocks, freshly cut grass, with wild strawberries and some scorched earth. Palate was slightly tannic, with very good acidity and a decent amount of wild strawberries and cherries. Length was lacking but very pleasant and round.

    December 24, 2013 - Was very relieved to see a lighter colored wine as I've suffered many big, extracted burgs lately that never seem to be in the "right place". Nice mellow color showing some age with the slightest orange glint just before the outermost clear rim. Classy nose of funky sous bois and secondary red cherry fruit. Not at all soft and mushy as brisk acid keeps a sense of freshness and plenty of life left. A real class AC bottle from a top-notch producer. Proof that over-ripeness and over-extraction don't make for great burgundy.

    November 16, 2013 - Dark, but slightly tawny, clear. Clean nose, lots of fruit, liquorice, violets. Full palate, same as nose, but nice minerality, tannins very well integrated. Medium finish. Excellent village Gevrey, drinking beautifully now, but no hurry to drink.

    June 27, 2013 - Very elegant and well evolved Gev Chamb Village. Right now (and in the coming 2 to 3 years) it is totally ready to shoot it down your gullet with a great amount of pleasure. There was plenty of lightness, sublime fruit, surprising clarity and seriously well balanced concentration in this wine. Great complexity for a Village, too. Sorry can't write a lot of substantial information - it was just great. I wish I'd have another bottle in my cellar!!!!

    February 14, 2013 - Village on steroids. Big in every way, core red fruits, lots of up front tannin that last through to a gripping finish, on the way vinous and sappy with a touch of wet saddle. Still quite unevolved and four square, needs another 5 years to come together.

    (Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin) Medium cherry-red colour. The nose soars, high-toned and fresh, with violets and cherry-skinned fruit over toast from the creamy oak base. Some fat, fresh red-shaded fruit on the palate with a creamy texture. This is, at best, only medium weight, but there's super purity and detail, the fruit is really quite punchy on the mid-palate. I prefer the finish on the 2001 but this presents itself really well - I'll also buy a couple more of these. One negative from the last drops, the nose becomes quite estery and not that pleasant - quite a contrast to the 2001.
