This is an old vines blend from the famous village of Gevrey-Chamberin, The appellation is named for Gevrey, the name of the town, and Chambertin, the most important vineyard within the area. The term old vines, or vielles vines, is applied to this wine since it comes from some of the most mature vines that the Marchand family holds in the region. This is a big wine with intense aromas of raspberry, violets, and herbs, almost reminiscent of a Pomerol (Merlot based Bordeaux). Medium-full bodied, which can be expected from a wine of this caliber at this state, the wine has a great finish that goes on and on. I am expecting great things from this lineup, and will look forward to monitoring the progress of these exciting, authentic wines from this ever important part of the winemaking world.
