A 2002 Mugneret-Gibourg Horizontal: Vivid and punchy and charismatic - immediately grabbed everyone's attention. Pure and pungent aromas of red fruit and a bit of meat and blood, all underlined by rock. Powerful stuff, but entirely pure and gentle too. Shows the nobility of the vineyard - a wonderful wine and drinking so well now.
Excellent. High toned, piercing, complex, wild flower and red berry nose, a meatiness to it after 45+ min open. From young Ruchottes vines. Showing beautifully at this stage. Drink now and over next few years I would think.
Out of magnum, young vine Ruchottes-Chambertin. Really impressive immediately from the bottle. Nose is very elegant for Gevrey, an almost floral component to the high toned darker fruit. Perfectly balanced in the mouth with a long finish. Certainly not a village wine. Held it's own with other Gevrey grands crus.

(Mugneret Dr Georges Gevrey-Chambertin) From the young vines of their Ruchottes-Chambertin. Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. The ebullient nose still has an extra edge of oak derived vanilla, but behind, swirling releases truffley, high-toned, red fruit. The palate has lovely acidity that pushes the vanilla-tinged finish ever longer - in fact very long. Lovely fruit, this is a nicely textured, medium bodied wine and one that I'm very pleased to have (a few) in the celler.
