Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Heresztyn-Mazzini 2012
An estate founded by a former Polish vineyard worker of Louis Trapet. Domaine Heresztyn has been one of the
consistently fine producers in Gevrey Chambertin. However, as Florence Heresztyn increasingly takes the reins, they have clearly reached another level of quality. The vineyard is now undergoing conversion to biodynamic viticulture. As Clive Coates remarks: “Now they are amongst the top in the village: elegant, composed, full of fruit, full of definition. A major address these days.” These are wonderful glossy precocious wines with eloquent cherry and bilberry fruit and a certain stoniness that betokens good ageing potential. Plenty of energy, vinosity and concentration here.
This Gevrey-Chambertin vieilles vignes from 50-year-old parcels planted on deep limestone-clay soils is a firm favourite. The nose is expansive, yielding aromas of strawberry, blackcurrant and violet and the mouth is sensual with pure fruit flavours lingering on the tongue.
A great wine showing some mature, developed flavours; perfect with duck or Baron Bigod cheese!
