Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from August 13 2014

Wine: 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin "En Champs"

Producer: Domaine Geantet-Pansiot

Comment: A ripe and quite deeply pitched nose of densely fruited and beautifully layered red and dark berries and plenty of warm earth nuances that can also be found on the serious and seriously concentrated flavors that ooze dry extract before culminating in a moderately firm and impressively long finish that is both balanced and mouth coating. This will not win awards for refinement but it's rare for a villages level wine to get anywhere close to this level of quality. Highly recommended.

Score: 92 Drink: 2015+
