"This is very Gevrey in style with its taut muscularity and it offers very fine quality" - Burghound
I'm always on the hunt for value in Burgundy, and I jumped on this parcel when I saw it. At as low as $49.95 per bottle, this isn't just the best price around by a healthy margin, it is also a dynamite bottle for the price.
Drouhin turned out stunning 2014s. Across the lineup, the wines are pure, precise, and beautifully representative of each site. The 2014 Gevrey highlights this. This is a textbook example of Gevrey.
Gevrey-Chambertin is possibly the most famous of Burgundy's red wine-producing villages. Its combination of muscle, impact, and sheer class makes it very memorable.
Drouhin's 2014 Gevrey flaunts what makes Gevrey so special. There are soaring floral top notes with dark red fruits, earth, mushrooms, and Gevrey's tell-tale meatiness.
Drouhin is one of my go-tos in Burgundy when it comes to purity, terroir expressiveness, and value. The 2014 Gevrey serves as a perfect example of these qualities. Finding Gevrey with some bottle age at this price is rare. I urge you to take advantage of this while you can.

Burghound: "A deft touch of wood sets off the fresh and airy nose that features plenty of sauvage and pungent earth character on the wild dark currant, humus and a discreet hint of various floral elements. There is lovely energy and underlying tension to the relatively big-bodied flavors that display both touches of austerity and rusticity on the highly persistent but notably firm finish. This is very Gevrey in style with its taut muscularity and it offers very fine quality as the rusticity does not dominate. Also recommended." Special 4-Pack Price: $199.80 ($49.95/btl)
