Description

Denis Bachelet uses six different parcels in Brochon to make this structured, stylishly oaked mini-Gevrey-Chambertin. It always outperforms its lowly appellation, and the 2017 is fresh yet plush, showing notes of Asian spices, dark plum and liquorice with impressive focus and length. 92 points Decanter

The 2017 Côtes de Nuits Village, which comes from vines located around Brochon, sees around 20% new oak. It has a very pure and generous bouquet with dark cherries, hints of boysenberry and light violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfect acidity, silky smooth in texture with a long and tender, pure finish. Simply, Côte de Nuits does not get better than this. 90-92 points Vinous

Here too there is a deft touch of wood surrounding the earthier and more sauvage-inflected aromas of black cherry and raspberry. The fleshy and delicious medium-bodied flavors possess a relatively refined mouthfeel thanks to the fine grained tannins shaping the sneaky long finale. Lovely. 88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
