henri jouan 2008 gevery aux echézeaux



I cannot take credit for this ‘find’; it was Ray Walker of Maison Ilan who gave me the tip – he’s already bought a few cases. So will I, I think, perhaps a visit too next month if possible!

2008 Henri Jouan, Gevrey-Chambertin Aux Echézeaux Vieilles Vignes
Medium colour. First there’s a hint of musky vanilla going on; as the vanilla fades to the background there a more higher-toned, almost floral aroma; finally there is a beautifully precise red berry note – who needs to drink? Clean, with a slighly cushioned texture, fine acity that enables a long line into the finish. You’ve got to search hard to find the tannin. Fresh but not overly so, this is a perfectly fresh berry for plucking right now if you so feel. Lovely, lovely wine.
Rebuy – Yes

    Am intrigued. No entry in the index to Jasper’s book but does appear in Coates TWOB.

    No UK entries in winesearcher either.

    Note a Morey, address & be very interested to learn more Bill. From a piece in Google vineyard work seems the domaine’s raison d’etre with a quote the soil is turned 7/8 times a year. Wonder if Berthille Arlaud and her horses are used – Berthille & Romain A won’t tell me who B’s clients are.

    Meantime, another nice 2008 😉 . Nice one Ray.

    Glad to see that you enjoyed your first Jouan, Bill. I really enjoy the wines. They are the most represented (other) producer in my cave, I bought around 15 cases for 08 and 09s. Safe to say I like them a little. 😉
