2013 Domaine Denis Bachelet - Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes (92 pts) @domaine _bachelet ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Pinot Noir from multiple old vine parcels planted in 1932 and 1937 in Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France. Domaine Denis Bachelet only has 3.85 ha under vine, with this Cuvée being the largest bottling. Hand-harvested, 💯 destemmed grapes, and using indigenous yeast fermentation. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months with 20% new oak. 👁 Medium ruby color, unfiltered. 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe dark cherry, black currant, raspberry, oak, star anise, earth, wet rock, roasted duck, and mint tea. 👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium- fine-grained tannins, medium alcohol (12.5%), and medium+ body. The palate shows a depth of concentration and an excellent weight for a village-level wine. A medium+ length finish of dark berries, oak spices, and mint tea. 🔔 The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is another illustration of how a producer can punch above their village level status with great old vine vineyards. This wine was waking up on day two and should be held for a few more years as it should continue to improve. These wines have crept up in price over the last few years. That being said, they still deliver a lot of quality even at these prices. 💰 ~$125 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #denisbachelet #domainebachelet #gevreychambertin #vieillesvignes #pinotnoir #burgundy #burgundywine #burgundywines #pinotnoirlover #burgundylover
