Peter Maude Fine Wines

2014, Domaine Alain Burguet, GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN, 'Mes Favorites', Magnum 1500mL

Like the Symphonie but more deeply pitched with slightly riper aromas of red and dark currant, earth and humus scents. There is also more volume to the sappy and attractively textured medium-bodied flavours that display only mild rusticity on the serious and built-to-age finale. Moderate patience will be required. Recommended. Outstanding top Value. 88-91 Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Bright, dark red. Riper on the nose than the Symphonie with aromas of dark plum, raspberry and menthol. The dark fruit flavours suggest a later harvest here. Flavours of black cherry, dark plum, menthol and minerals are juicy and tight but carry well on the firmly tannic back end. Avoids the slight dry edge shown by the Symphonie. 87-90 Stephen Tanzer
