There is enough wood to be easily perceptible though not so much as to impede an appreciation of the spicy dark berry fruit, earth and underbrush suffused nose. The seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess a velvety mouth feel thanks to the abundance of palate coating dry extract that also does a fine job of buffering the moderately firm tannic spine on the ever-so-slightly rustic finish. A fine Gevrey villages. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2018+

The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin Vielles Vignes comes from several parcels and is raised in 30% new oak. It has another extremely pure bouquet, the new oak succinctly embroidered into the pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, the mineralité just lurking underneath. The palate has a candied note on the entry, a sweet core of red berry fruit pricked with hints of orange zest and it displays wonderful tension and vigour on the finish. This is outstanding for a village cru. Jun 2015, www.robertparker.com

The Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2012 from Denis Bachelet is a true beauty and one of the most exiting wines I have tasted recently. The Bachelet wines are very rarely seen in Denmark - so I have very little experience with this magnificent producer. The bouquet is floral and forward offering very airy red fruit notes - complex, transparent with a nice display of terroir. On the palate very juicy and energetic for the vintage offering a tremendous freshness and balance. A gorgeous wine... loved every drop. Aug 2016, www.winehog.org
