sylvie esmonin gevrey chambertin

I bought one bottle each of this, the Vieilles-Vignes and the Clos St.Jacques to compare and then decide which to purchase more of – but within days everything was sold – so the bigger brother and sister are packed away for a date together in the future.
2005 Sylvie Esmonin, Gevrey-Chambertintry to find this wine...
Medium-plus colour. The nose starts with blue and black-skinned fruit over soft base that very faintly hints to stems – slowly the fruit becomes a nice precise currant note with a passing mint-leaf aroma. Silky-soft texture that’s linear to start and widens a little before black-cherry fruit takes over. The finish is distinguished by a slowly lingering softly-sweet flavour.
Rebuy – Yes

Plus a day in the life

    Err … your Chinese translation is not that accurate. Are you using Google Translate?

    I know it takes time to properly translate. I spent an equal amount of time going through it as well.

    Hi Daniel,
    Yes Google, but Babelfish or WorldLingo are two different options if you think either of them better for Chinese(?)
    Cheers, Bill

    I adore the village and the vieilles vignes. I’ve drunk a few cases of this already 🙁 In fact, I’ve run out.

    Tried the Clos St. Jacques. It was extremely tight and closed. Needs a big sleep.

    Hi Gavin – I bought one of each to test, but by the time I got round to opening, everything was sold out – so the cork stayed in the CSJ…
