Domaine Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin Les Evocelles Vieilles Vignes 2014
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
Wine AdvocateDenis has just three barrels of the 2014 Gevrey Chambertin les Evocelles this year from Denis' 0.17-hectares of vine planted in 1961 and 1969. It has, what I would describe as a very natural nose, nonchalant and refined, nothing over the top with gentle redcurrant and strawberry fruit, as well as an undertow of cold stone. The palate is just beautiful: filigree tannin, precise and focused, mineral rich on the finish that has not a hair out of place. This might well be the best "village cru" that I have ever tasted from barrel.
