gevrey 2002 1er clos des varoilles

By billn on March 27, 2013 #degustation

2002 des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoilles Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose starts with a hint of herb, a little leafy development, soil and some high-tones above – it leaves me with the expectation that the wine… Read More

camus 1998 chambertin

By billn on January 08, 2012 #degustation

You may remember that I was mildly surprised by how good (or at least not bad) the quality of the Camus wines were: Well as the 2010 En-Primeurs are being rolled out, you might find you can buy this Chambertin for less than some ‘worthy’ producer’s villages Vosne,… Read More

1998 denis mortet gevrey-chambertin

By billn on February 27, 2009 #degustation

1998 Denis Mortet, Gevrey-Chambertin I’ve opened one of these almost every year since release – it’s rare that I buy a 12-bottle case, but occasionally ‘research’ is important! Frankly, due to the oak treatment this has been a roller-coaster ride. Last year I didn’t think so highly of the… Read More

savour club 1991 chapelle-chambertin

By billn on November 23, 2008 #degustation

I picked up a few bottles of this at a recent auction – for a relative song if they taste halfway good! The Savour Club still exists in Belgium/Germany/France/Switzerland as a wine merchant, though today they don’t seem (as in this case) to be so actively using their… Read More

clos des varoilles 2003

By billn on April 04, 2007 #degustation

2003 Domaine des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoilles Deep colour. The nose is an impressively wide and sweet affair tempered by a faintly spicy and understated vanilla, slowly it releases flashes of red and black fruits. In the mouth it’s less sweet than the nose… Read More

04 clos des varoilles

By billn on February 25, 2007 #degustation

2004 Domaine des Varoilles, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos des Varoilles Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. The nose hovers close to fantastic – beautiful red berry fruit edged with cream – but from time to time there’s a rather powder and indistinct edge, the wine could never quite make up… Read More

domaine des varoilles, 2003 la romanée

By billn on December 21, 2006 #degustation

There are a number of La Romanées, and all have a good reputation. This one hides it’s light under a bushel as it’s a monopole of a relatively little-known producer – but take it from me, the quality is right up there with that of many better-known producers. Read More
