Domaine Alain Burguet, Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes ‘Mes Favorites’ 2004

Burguet Favorites 2004

From sixty year-old vines in Brochon and northern Gevrey.

Ten years on tasting.

Violet-tinged ruby.  Shows vintage character on entry, more piney than pyrene: purple plums steeped in holiday wreath, strained through earth.  More clarity on day two, virile and leathery: pastis, crunchy griotte, sweet coppa and a blackened minerality.  A carnal Burguet in plain-speak, with the safe bet to drink these sooner instead of later.
