"The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has a pure and fragrant bouquet with red rose petals infusing the vivid red cherry and fresh strawberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, quite tight and reserved on the entry with a keen line of acidity, correct and linear towards the fresh finish."


Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 12/2015


"(from Les Champs Perriers in Brochon) There is enough reduction to mask the fruit but there is good freshness and verve to the more intense, mineral-driven and muscular flavors that possess a sleek mouth feel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins. I very much like the overall depth as well as the fine persistence on the well-balanced finish. Recommended. Drink: 2022+"

"Deep plum and red cherry aromas are lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Juicy, shapely and deep; more delineated and filled in than the Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echézeaux, which nearly every vintage strikes me as more Chambolle in character (these vines are situated on the southern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin). Finishes with firm, integrated tannins and very good length."
