"The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Village Vieilles Vignes has another broody bouquet cut from the same cloth as the Côtes de Nuits: brambly black fruit mixed with woodland, almost wet sand aromas. These aromatics take you down into the earth instead of up into the air. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, sorbet-fresh red cherry and boysenberry fruit. This is full of energy, full of vim and vigour with a harmonious finish that delivers a touch of bitter lemon that lends it edge. Superb." Robert Parker
