Assorted Burgundies 1
Winery : Various
2013 Domaine Geantet-Pansiot Vielles Vignes Gevrey Chambertin: Dark cherries on the nose with marzipan and white pepper. Brooding style, rich and deep, very inviting.
2013 Domaine Geantet-Pansiot Vielles Vignes Chambolle Musigny: Exotic perfume, violets and dark fruits, sweet almond too. Quite a mouthful, plump sweet fruit and firm tannins to finish.
2015 Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley Vielles Vignes Volnay: Beautiful deep colour. Dark fruits with licorice on the nose and palate. Flavours are intense and vibrant with fine, firm tannin finish, courtesy of the old vines. Plenty of cellar life left.
2016 Faiveley Mercurey 'La Framboisière': Aptly named, the wine is redolent with raspberry-scented fruit, on the nose and flooding the palate with its sweet litheness. Bright and very appealing. Tim Atkin: 'What's not to like?'
