Domaine Denis Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes

Wine Details


Pinot Noir



Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) The 2011 Vieilles Vignes bottling was raised in thirty-five percent new wood this year, which is customary these days chez Bachelet. The superb bouquet is pure and fairly reserved, delivering scents of cassis, black cherries, incipient notes of the meatiness to come, French roast, black minerality and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very suave and pure on the attack, with a fine core, excellent focus and balance, fine-grained tannins and a very long, primary and classy finish.
