Garnet core with ruby edge; pretty nose, flavor reminded me of sucking on a nickel; palate is complex with cranberry, sour cherry , slight confected fruit, iron, sauvage, good Gevrey richness; mouthfilling and very satisfying. You definitely get the old vine complexity in this bottle compared to the regular village bottling.
Ripe, but not at all overripe. This has a really nice freshness for 2009 and it's really well balanced also. Smooth texture. Rich and deep for a villages and a true Gevrey in its aromatic profile. A long aftertaste. Great still on the second day, but didn't quite make it to the third.
(Drank at Vin Rouge in Durham) Outstanding Burgundy. Ruby Color. Dark fruit on the nose with small hint of spice and minerals. Silky texture on the palate. Ripe fruit initially with underlying mocha and hint of spice. Moderately long finish, Despite its youth drinking very well with nicely integrated tannins.
(at Villaret – Paris) My introduction to this Domain after many years of reading great press. This wine delivered the goods. Obviously young, but shows promise. The style is for richness yet balance – the year could be playing a part in this. Finishes strong. Nice, if a bit expensive. (91)
