The wines have a marked family resemblance, they are deep and colourful, but are characterised by a sensuality and a finesse that make them very alluring.

Wine AdvocateMedium-to-dark ruby-colored, the Gevrey-Chambertin reveals dark cherry and spice aromas and an attractive burst of crisp berry fruit which tailed off quickly. Drink it within 4 years of its release. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. I was impressed with Robert Groffier's 1995s. They displayed good ripeness, concentration and structure. It is the first vintage where his wines will not be subjected to either a fining or filtration. I have purchased, drunk and cellared some of his previous vintages (and sold them when I worked in retail) and have seen the heights this domaine is capable of achieving.
