Had the pleasure of having this wine three times in the past year. Love it! It has everything I love about Burgundy. Bright red fruit laced with truffles, crushed rocks, wonderful aromatics, and a silky sexiness that only comes from Gevrey. Can't keep my hands off it.
See prior tasting note a few weeks ago. A very consistent wine that does not disappoint. I can't keep my hands off this wine it is so good for the price. Only add to my prior tasting note is that this bottle did show some "green stem" in the finish with a slight bit of effervescence. Nevertheless, still a great wine that I could sit and smell all night long. A sexy Gevrey!
This was a nice surprise to the evening. Popped and poured, this wine is a show stopper. A sexy Gevrey in every sense. A great nose, mid-palate, and finish. I could sit and smell this wine for hours. It is already showing a secondary flavor profile with underbrush, black truffle, and mineral. Love this wine... if you can find it, buy it. It is a great bottle to open for your friends who love new world pinot to expose them to a new experience with Burgundy. They will never drink Pinot Noir the same after having this wine.
The powerful perfume of Gevrey bursts from the glass with flowers and earth, and the tannin is beautifully integrated for a wine so young - but I'll certainly hold a couple for revisiting. Drinks like premier or even grand cru as opposed to village. Tasty.
Visit to Domaine Sylvie Esmonin in June 2014 (Gevrey-Chambertin, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy): Good garnet colour. Bramble aromas, spice, a little earth and underbrush frame the fruit on the nose. The entry on the palate has power that comes from the generous fruit. A rich and crunchy wine. Good fruit weight. The tannins are soft and dusty and the finish is long and rich. This is accessible and drinking well now but shows potential for improvement with age.
