Domaine Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2012

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The Denis Bachelet style is for wines of intensity, great elegance, and subtlety: feminine in the best sense. They are concentrated, harmonious, pure and understated. Except for his 1991s, which are marginally unimpressive, this domaine has not put a foot wrong.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.
