The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a complex bouquet: deep broody dark fruit, cold flint, undergrowth, hints of wild mushroom furnishing the aromatics. The palate is silky smooth with supple tannins, perfectly pitched acidity and a sensual, smooth raspberry and wild strawberry finish that is more like a 2012 than 2011. This is just divine ? one of the best village crus you will track down in this vintage. Drink now-2024.

When tasting through Denis Bachelet?s 2012s, he invited a run through his 2011s that provided a lucid juxtaposition between the two vintages, while reaffirming the commonly held notion that Denis has an innate ability to transcend the limitations of the growing season. His 2011s are some of the best you will find in the appellation from top to bottom.
