Healthy dark red. At once superripe and floral on the nose. Round, silky and seamless but not particularly sweet in the mouth, with dark berry and violet flavors showing wild nuances of game and leather. This very rich village wine will rely more on its tannins than on its acidity for longevity.

The 2012 Gevrey Chambertin Vielles Vignes comes from several parcels and is raised in 30% new oak. It has another extremely pure bouquet, the new oak succinctly embroidered into the pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, the mineralité just lurking underneath. The palate has a candied note on the entry, a sweet core of red berry fruit pricked with hints of orange zest and it displays wonderful tension and vigour on the finish. This is outstanding for a village cru.
