Domaine Denis Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
|Brand||Domaine Denis Bachelet|
The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes contains what fruit was eked out from Evocelles this year. It has a clean, precise bouquet of black cherries, iodine, violet and light sous-bois aromas that soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a granular texture, impressive weight and disarming elegance and harmony on the finish. Try finding a better Village Cru than this in 2019... you won't.
Bachelet's 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has turned out beautifully in bottle. Soaring from the glass with aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with sweet spices, licorice, rose petals and orange rind, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with terrific concentration, lively acids and a long, perfumed finish. As readers will remember, this cuvée incorporates the domaine's holdings in Les Evocelles this year.
