This is also reduced but much less so and the influence of the stems is quite visible. There is excellent verve and detail to the mineral-inflected and firm flavors that display a distinctly different texture compared to that of the prior two wines. There is also better precision and a saline character to the concentrated, complex, balanced and impressively persistent finish. Another one to consider as this is a fine villages. Tasted: Jan 14, 2013. Drink: 2017+



The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a tightly coiled, earthy bouquet that takes you straight to a forest-floor on a damp October morning. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp blackberry and raspberry on the entry interlaced with white pepper and a touch of balsamic that lends freshness and tension. Good length in the mouth, this is a delicious village cru, though the 2012 just has the edge. Drink now-2024+. ||Having tasted through her excellent 2012s, Sylvie invited me a run through her 2011s that had been bottled in April 2013. eRobertParker.com.February, 2014
