2020, Domaine Burguet, GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN, 'Mes Favorites'

$78 ex. GST
$89.70 inc. GST
Estimated full landed price – $102.24

Selected from 18 parcels in vineyards situated in Brochon and the northern sector of Gevrey with a few to the east of D974 that average approximately 75 years of age; these include Les Corvées, Reniard, Jouise, Sylvie, Champs Perriers, Carré Rougeaud, Combe de Lavaut, Fourneau, Murots, Billard and Creux Brouillard; 40% new wood.

Always good (though the 2020 proved tricky to taste while in barrel as you'll see below) but Mes Favorites cellars very well - especially satisfying in magnum format. Jean-Luc commenting that the 2020s reminded him of the great vintage 2002 -  bodes well!

Firm reduction [unfortunately] blocks an evaluation of the nose though there is good verve to the sleeker but not necessarily denser medium-bodied flavours that display a touch of rusticity on the slightly more structured finish that also exhibits a touch of warmth. 88-91 Allen Meadows, Burghound.
