Gevrey Chambertin VV, Domaine Bachelet 2020

Tasting Notes

Bachelet's 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes once again incorporates his holdings in Les Evocelles, which didn't produce enough grapes to merit a separate vinification. Bursting with aromas of cherries, raspberries, spices and licorice, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with velvety tannins, lively acids and an elegant, seamless profile.

There was virtually no fruit in the Evocelles vineyard, so it has not been made separately this year. Jet black centre with purple rim. Rich but not cooked. At first, I found it hard to climb inside this wine. Then came an explosion of dark red and black fruit with a light pepperiness behind, long and fine with excellent energy.
