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!
