Domaine Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin vieilles vignes 2007

13,13500

The extra ripeness that old vines often achieve is evident here in comparison to the prior wines as the earthy dark berry fruit is notably riper and this ripeness carries over to the concentrated, intense and sleekly muscled middle weight flavors possess buckets of sap that more than buffers the firm but not hard finishing structure. The length is at present shorter than I normally see with this wine though this may be a passing phase. –

Score: 87-90

While Esmonin’s “regular” village Gevrey 2007 was uncooperatively reduced when I encountered it from bottle last year and I did not have chance to taste the corresponding Cote De Nuits-Villages, her 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is fascinatingly-scented with cinnamon, rose petal, black tea, dark cherry, and blackberry; offers impressively dark color, palpable density, silken texture, and energetic brightness for its vintage; and finishes with a lovely persistence of rich fruit and spice. This is opaque vis-a-vis the 2008, but in a formidable way. It should be worth attending to for the better part of a decade.
