This presents a completely different aromatic profile with its distinctly earthy and sauvage aromas of super fresh red currant and wild dark berries. In the same fashion as the Chambolle there is excellent delineation and terrific intensity to the mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that deliver fine balance and persistence on the moderately austere finish. This too is well worth considering. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2019+

The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, dark plum, wild hedgerow and strawberry pastilles. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red and black fruit intermixed on the entry. There is commendable weight in evidence here, decent acidity, although it needs to demonstrate a little more complexity and tension on the finish. Keep the cellared for at least two or three years as I think it has something up its sleeve. Drink 2016-2025. ||I have been following the wines of Geantet-Pansiot for a number of years, since the domaine has a loyal following here in the UK. They have not been reviewed by this publication for three of four vintages, which is a pity because Vincent Geantet’s wines are very reliable and good value. I requested a visit to the domaine back in November, but the tardy malolactics meant that it was inopportune to do so, but I had the opportunity to taste some of their bottled 2012s in London.
