Light ruby with slight bricking. Incredible rusty, wet leave aromas. Then dusty earth, dry baking chocolate and some dry herbs make up the complex palate. Super long for such delicacy. Some of the green 2004 streak, but impeccably balanced. This is an 04 to treasure.
Famous vineyard with at least 1000 years of history. Great enough for the town of Gevrey to rename it self Gevrey-Chambertin. Burgundy is such a crap shoot. This is a generally terrible vintage, and a mid-tier producer, yet a great vineyard, but here is works wonders.
Retail is about $125 but my friend Josh found this for $70 at auction in Sept 2009. I’d probably buy more at this price. Grade: A.
