2018 Domaine Denis Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes #138730727
Based on 11 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 90-92 points Wine Advocate "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes soars from the glass with a rich bouquet of cassis, plums and dark berries mingled with notes of rose petal, loamy soil and grilled meats. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and sapid, with fine concentration, ripe tannins and an expansive finish. Broader and more muscular by comparison with the finer-boned, more incisive Evocelles, this is a classic expression of Gevrey-Chambertin. (WK)"

About Domaine Denis Bachelet
It wasn’t lucrative (or easy) at first. His grandparents had retired a decade prior, and Denis started from scratch without a cellar or equipment. A serendipitous meeting with importer Becky Wasserman introduced him to prominent wine writers like Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson, and Clive Coates. Critic reviews catapulted this one-man-show to the top of collector-worthy Burgundy with laud including “nobody makes Charmes-Chambertin like Denis Bachelet” (Neil Martin, WA)
Even his Village level wines have been described in the Wine Advocate as, “the best [v]illage-cru that I have ever tasted” (NM). If you have the opportunity to acquire one of his prized bottlings, you can expect a distinct style that’s built on power, concentrated flavors, and textural richness, thanks to his old vines and judicious use of new oak.
