Gevrey-Chambertin "Vieilles Vignes" 2011 - Maison Champy


This is the must for anyone who loves red Burgundy! Made from old vines (over 50 years old), it has a rich palate and gives a burst of black berry flavours and sweet spices. Very well balanced and complex with a long finish, this bottle has been waiting over 5 years in the domain’s cellar and is now ready. Clearly not easy to find such a fine wine ready to drink at that price… but Your Sommelier has done it again!

Jancis-Robinson.jpg

17/20 "One-third new oak. Scented and dark. Dry, mineral across the mid palate. Restrained, long. Lots of spice on the finish and a hint of meatiness." (previous vintage)

  

90/100 "A broad, chunky style, this has black cherry and berry flavors backed by firm tannins. Dense and a bit crisp on the finish, this will benefit from a little age. Best from 2015 through 2022"

Gault-Millau.jpg

16/20 "This wine has a complex nose where garden red fruits and wild berries mingle. The mouth is full, powerful, with tannins that prepare them for a long ageing." (previous vintage)
