2008 Heresztyn, Gevrey-Chambertin ChamponetsJan. 2011
Lithe black berries, hints of herbs, reticent yet at the same time involving. Here’s another rather mineral wine but with more structure – fine grained tannin with a hint of astringency. A good line of flavour into the finish – Yum!
2009 Heresztyn, Gevrey-Chambertin ChamponetsJan. 2011
Again the nose is a little tight but it is both darker and deeper than the Corbeaux – slowly a warm core of fruit develops. Mouth-filling structure again forms something of veil between you and the flavours – which is released the moment you swallow – serious wine!
2007 Boisset Jean-Claude, Gevrey-Chambertin ChamponetsJul. 2009
Three barrels produced. Medium, medium-plus colour. Forward red fruit aromas with just a hint of reduction in the background. More obvious structure than the Cazetiers but it is well packaged by ripe fruit. A good Gevrey-style finish. This is a good wine (for-sure) but I’d opt for the Cazetiers.
