chézeaux 2000 gevrey-chambertin


2000 des Chézeaux, Gevrey-Chambertintry to find this wine...
Medium-pale ruby-red. The nose starts with a waft of sweet oak, 2 minutes later it’s gone, replaced by a forward and ripe mix of strawberry/raspberry against a developing, more tertiary background. Sweet and soft with a good intensity in the mid-palate, the slowly mouthwatering finish is not bad either. This is a medium-weight wine that’s relatively easy drinking and simple but very tasty – shows the friendly side of the vintage.
Rebuy – Yes

    I am interested that you have hung onto the 2000s for so long. I quaffed most of mine by 2005 given the lightness of the vintage. Despite the lack of concentration there were some very tasty wines, I especially enjoyed the Choreys from Francois Gay.

    Many more where those came from David, and of-course I have to live long enough to warrant opening the best ones – certainly not before 2020, perhaps more like 2025 😉

    PS Some producers (pretty much exclusively Côte de Nuits) made in 2000 better qualitative equivalents of their 1999’s…

    Bill – liking the new layout but missing the speech-box for comments.
    Thought they looked very classy. Anyhow, can you quickly clear up the Ponsot/Chezeaux bottlings thing for me – essentially same wines??

    Very much work in progress David – I just wanted to move away from the generic ‘blog’ format to something that reflected the site.

    Re Chézeaux – if there’s anything specific you’re interested in that’s not to be found ‘here‘, just specifiy…

    Cheers (&thanks)
