Shop 'In Stock' Wines
"Healthy deep red. Tight aromas of blueberry and violet. Densely packed but light on its feet; more savory and less fruity than the village Gevrey. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and good minty persistence. I may be underrating this wine today." ST for VM Nov 2014

"The young Nicolas Groffier is quickly making his mark at the family estate since taking over winemaking responsibilities in 2007. Although he continues to carry out an extended pre-fermentation cold maceration (15 days at 12 degrees C in 2013), he told me that today he's looking less for roundness and power and more for clarity, energy and ageability, partly by vinifying with a higher percentage of whole clusters. This may have been my best visit to date to this estate, as some stunning wines were made here in both 2013 and 2012."
