The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, which this year contains the measly amount of Les Evocelles harvested, has superb concentration on the nose with black cherries, bilberry and light oyster shell scents, all beautifully-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and is very pure and concentrated, maybe just needing a little more mineralite to come through on the finish. Give this 3-4 years in bottle.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040

Bachelet’s 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes once again incorporates his holdings in Les Evocelles, which didn’t produce enough grapes to merit a separate vinification. Bursting with aromas of cherries, raspberries, spices and licorice, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with velvety tannins, lively acids and an elegant, seamless profile.
