weekend wines – week 32 – 3 from 3 were winners…



Back in Beaune this weekend – and it was a warm one – 33°C on Sunday! The wines had a good showing – 3 from 3 were winners

2013 Chezeaux, Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Chezeaux
Amélie Berthaut’s first vintage in the cellar, and this is a very nice wine indeed. The red fruit is just a little powdery, but it also has the impression of raspberry intensity and fresh crunchiness. Showcasing the best of 2013 with plenty of acidity but really an alive impression to the flavour. Only the faintest drag to the tannin. A bottle that drains very quickly – delicious wine!
Rebuy – Yes

2014 Nathalie & Gilles Fevre, Chablis 1er Vaulorent
Pale lemon yellow. A really inviting, fresh, salty seashore with a tang of lemon – hmm – already mouth-watering! Quite large in the mouth, but fabulously complex, with mouth-watering sweetly acid flavours – still with a good weight of flavour in the mid-palate. Just a gorgeous wine, it’s as tasty as the fabulous 14 Gueguen Vaucopins with a little extra richness of texture.
Rebuy – Yes

2012 Dublère, Beaune 1er Blanches Fleurs
My second of these in the last month, but what an inspired pairing to go with (Beaune market) prawns, cooked with tomatoes and a little white wine. It’s the oak that I previously commented on, that rounds out the palate, a palate that remains absolutely juicy and fresh. The nose retains a smooth red fruit, hardly extravagant, but not timid either. Plush, fresh and and waves of barrel-inflected flavours from the mid-palate into the finish. Absolutely yum!
Rebuy – Yes
