Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from September 30 2015

Wine: 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes

Producer: Domaine Jean-Michel Guillon

Comment: Integrated wood frames an impressively complex if decidedly somber nose of plum, cassis and plenty of Gevrey style earth. There is exceptionally good richness to the solidly well-concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of old vine extract that relegates the firm tannic spine to the background on the balanced and strikingly long finish. This delivers excellent quality for its level and is recommended plus it should amply reward a decade of cellar time.

Score: 89-92 Drink: 2020+
