Pale ruby. Perfumed, gorgeous nose of cherry, wild flower, and sous bois. On the palate, explosive cherry flavors. Slight effervescence. So much wrapped up in such a light, almost ethereal wine. The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieille Vigne reminds you why you love Burgundy. Drink through 2020+.
Had this with 2011 Rousseau villages. Both were equally enjoyable if a bit disappointing due to the vintage. Nice pure pjnot fruit. No fizz that I noticed in the last bottle. Mix of light red fruits like cranberry and pomegranate. And also herbal vegetal notes and medicinal compared to rousseau. Seems less vibrant than my last bottle.
Coravined. Beautiful nose, floral and elegant. Seems like this wine is approachable again. Still primary, notes of roses, spices, underbrush, and oaks. Soils are less obvious at the moment despite being a GC. Vibrant acidity, very smooth on entry, good balance. More like a 1er Cru than village.
Ruby red young color. Crystal clear. Nose has great amounts of sweet cherries and normal cherries. Very powerful seductive sweet-fruited nose. Strawberry candy. Hints of apples. Very obvious sweet raspberry candy. Marzipan. Leather and coffee. Lovely and complex though perhaps a bit light nose. Doesn't promise depth on the palate, this nose. It is very elegant. The palate is beautiful, though. More power than I could expect from the nose. Just as lovely as I hoped it would be. Sweet and full-bodied berry-juice. Some of the wonderful succulent "newly crushed grapes"-feeling is still here. Starting to develop slowly beyond the primary level, but still lots of fresh fruit. Very well integrated tannins and all in all perhaps one of the best village Burgundy-wines from 2011 I have ever tasted.
