Robert Parker 91
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 that is uninteresting in giving much away at the moment. Afford this 3-4 years in bottle to get the most from it.

North of village, bottom of Champerrier plus a bit from Combe du Bas, planted 1928. 10,000 vines/ha. This came from his father. Coincidence that it was planted same year as the Aux Échezeaux from his mother. Mid to light blueish crimson. Quite sweet and grainy. Lots of substance and pzazz with a hint of bitterness on the finish.
