gevrey 2009 1er clos des varoilles

gevrey-2002-clos-varoilles

I guess I’ve been a lone voice reviewing these wines since at least 2003, but here’s yet another wine that offers serious value…

2009 des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoilles
Medium-plus colour. The nose has a lovely depth of red berries but despite that extra twist of 2009 ripeness, there’s fine freshness too. Full, intense and with concentrated sweet fruit – yet, just like the nose there’s tons of freshness too – I suppose that’s the way it should be, given its position on the hillside. There’s a bit of silken fat that slowly becomes more velvet as you hold the wine in your mouth. Very tasty stuff, and at a price to embarrass many famous names in the village…
Rebuy – Yes

    I stumbled into their tasting room back in 2010 after arriving at Chez Guy a little too late (kitchen closed at 145pm sorry)
    The lady at Varoilles gave us cheese and crackers to tide us over, while pouring that same wine but 99 and 02…they were the only domaine to have older wines for purchase so I bought 6 bottles right away, which was quite a large purchase considering I had to put them all in my check in luggage for my plane ride home…
    I will definitely pay them a visit again the next time I’m in Burgundy, and say hello to the lovely dog they have!
