Domaine Sylvie Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin vieilles vignes 2007

13,13500

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.

Description

• Formerly known as Domaine Michel Esmonin et Fille, the Domaine was renamed when Sylvie took over from her father Michel who “… in a few years … has transformed a sleepy estate … into an excellent source of wine”. – The Great Domaines of Burgundy, Remington Norman –
• Clos Saint-Jacques is arguably Gevrey-Chambertin’s most prestigious Premier Cru climat.
• Critics have scored this as one of the top 5 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Saint-Jacques wines. The Wine Advocate gave the 2005 vintage a score of 96 and Jancis Robinson gave the 2014 vintage a score of 18/20.
• In a few short years the Esmonin estate has become one of the leaders in Gevrey Chambertin and the Cote de Nuits.
