2020 Sylvie Esmonin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vieillles Vignes 6x75cl

Located in the old part of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, at the foot of the legendary Clos Saint Jacques vineyard, since 1988 the scrupulous Sylvie cultivates 7 ha under her own name. Her deep... knowledge of the vines and meticulous vinification techniques result in wines of great maturity and intensity, capable of great ageing potential. As you'd expect, these wines are in very high demand and Mr.Wheeler are delighted to be offering a selection of Sylvie’s wines for the third vintage in a row. We urge you to snap up a case or two of these sensational wines, whilst you can. Super fine tannins and plenty of matière here, Sylvie crafted a Gevrey Vieilles Vignes of impressive depth, and continuing in the style seen in the lower cuvées, it is clear that early picking once again was the key to keeping a salinity and freshness that lifts the richly-textured palate. Many producers would be happy with this sort of precision in their premiers crus!

2020 Sylvie Esmonin, Cote de Nuits-Villages, Rouge 6x75cl

VM87-89
Located in the old part of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, at the foot of the legendary Clos Saint Jacques vineyard, since 1988 the scrupulous Sylvie cultivates 7 ha under her own name. Her deep... knowledge of the vines and meticulous vinification techniques result in wines of great maturity and intensity, capable of great ageing potential. As you'd expect, these wines are in very high demand and Mr.Wheeler are delighted to be offering a selection of Sylvie’s wines for the third vintage in a row. We urge you to snap up a case or two of these sensational wines, whilst you can. An altogether fuller-bodied, yet even more red fruit-dominated cuvée than the Bourgogne Rouge, Sylvie's Côte de Nuits villages is a poised, structured and balanced style of Burgundy that will age well - and indeed will require just a little patience, requiring a good 7 to 8 years to reach its drinking window where it should stay for another 7 years or so.

2020 Sylvie Esmonin, Bourgogne, Cuvee Sylvie 6x75cl

VM85-87
Located in the old part of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, at the foot of the legendary Clos Saint Jacques vineyard, since 1988 the scrupulous Sylvie cultivates 7 ha under her own name.

We urge you to snap up a case or two of these sensational wines, whilst you can. Sylvie delivers a fine Bourgogne Rouge in 2020 - for the first time the cuvée includes some Morey-St-Denis fruit, and it shows in the lightly spicy edge that lifts up the core of raspberry coulis with hints of black cherry. Early picking has once again given the spine of acidity making this so moreish. It will age well mid-term - but only if you manage to resist its youthful charm.

2020 Sylvie Esmonin, Volnay Premier Cru, Santenots 6x75cl

Although firmly based in Gevrey-Chambertin, Sylvie also does a mere 0.17 hectares of this Volnay Premier Cru. And making wines of such maturity and complexity as she does in the Cote d'Or, here her... rendering of pinot noir planted on Les Santenots' clay-rich terroir makes for a full-bodied wine, velvety in texture and cleanly defined. Fresh violets on the nose, lots of black cherry and mild spice with finely tuned tannins on the palate, it retains great freshness, depth and length finishing up.
