Bottled in November 2018 to preserve its youthful, supple, appealingly aromatic fruit, this lightly wooded Pinot from Gevrey is bright and well balanced, with the finesse that's typical of the Duroché wines. A classic example of 2017 at its youthful best.
91/100 Tim Atkin MW for Decanter (it also features in Tim’s Best Value Red Burgundies of the vintage)

Fine and focused nose, with iodene, and a touch of smoke curling around wild strawberries and the brambly hedgerows in which you find them.  Palate is sophisticated and energetic, with herbaceous edged red fruits and a touch of cedar.

Pierre needs no introduction these days, having been propelled in to the very front ranks of Burgundy’s most sought-after growers, for all he remains as diffident and charming as ever. With ever increasing global demand for allocations, we never get as much of his Grands Crus as we’d like but the quality and value across the range is always exciting and we are delighted to have a good supply of Pierre’s various expressions of Gevrey Chambertin.

Quite an easy vintage” says Pierre: Following a wet winter, there was no more serious rain after March, and no botrytis, or rot, although he mentions there was a bit of hail on the north side of Gevrey in July which caused a 20% crop loss (my heart always sinks proportionate to any dip in available quantity of Duroché wines). The Grand Crus have 20-30% whole bunches and Pierre uses the same percentage of new oak in all his wines from Bourgogne Rouge to Clos de Beze.

As for comparative vintages, he points to 2007 for fruit, aromatic profile and balance, but with the concentration and energy of 2010. Roll up, roll up.
