Domaine Bachelet Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2009

$105

The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes powers through the palate with an authoritative core of dark fruit. This shows quite a bit of muscle and density. Minerals and crushed rocks wrap around the big, building finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Delicious from open. Fresh, bright dark red fruit, good acid and some sugary sweetness.

Nice spice and mineral to go with the ripe, dark fruit.

Starts with beguiling fragrance of crushed black fruits, stem-like, musky, anise notes (Bachelet de-stems Pinot) that blossoms into full blown Pinosity. There’s a beautiful purple edge to the color, which is something you don’t see in wines of this age: a very good sign for further cellaring. Flavors combine fruit and savory with smooth tannins/mouthfeel and lengthy finish. Punches way above it’s class.

Fried chicken a la Bouchon's recipe with 09 Mugnier Marechale and Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin. We're talking Shabbat Shalom in the Palisades...

Creosote, smoky elements emerge initially, then settles down with aeration revealing with black fruits (cherries); dark color, more alcohol and tannin are present from this "ripe" vintage but are nicely balanced with surprisingly good acidity.
