2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, Champonnet 6x75cl

A powerful yet delicate, beautifully balanced ripe cherry nose leads you to a perfectly crafted juicy and slightly spicy palate with gentle hints of a freshly lit “Romeo y Julieta” wafting through. This is a serious wine with great class and finesse. Be sure to let alone a while before drinking and reward your patience beyond all expection.

2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, La Perriere 6x75cl

This wine comes from a great vineyard scattered with small stones and abutting the grand cru of Mazis-Chambertin. It creates a very elegant and dynamic wine with delicious layers of morello cherry and fresh herbs that are tempered by a delightful freshness and complexity. A wonderful example to be savoured over the next 10 to 15 years.

2020 Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vieilles Vignes 12x75cl

A blend of grapes from four vineyards in the appellation where the vines are between 60 and 90 years old. This is wonderfully aromatic with whiffs of strawberry and brambles but also having a distinct discretion and subtlety that begs further ageing. Gentle hints of 30% new oak and a lovely tannic structure frames a truly excellent wine.

2020 Domaine Henri Magnien, Gevrey-Chambertin, Vieilles Vignes 6x75cl

Aromatic, floral with notes of spearmint lifting the core of black cherry liqueur and winter spice, this boasts a wonderfully seductive texture and fruit-coated structure. 15% whole bunch really... opens up the nose. On the palate, very precise and harmonious already, long on the finish, this is an approachable Villages bottling, yet it will age beautifully for the best part of the 15 years to come.

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 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Village 6x75cl

A new find for Mr.Wheeler in the 2019 vintage and one we are pleased to follow since then; Domaine Livera is widely considered the “next Burgundian star” tellingly both by consumers of their... exceptional wines together with their winemaking contemporaries. The Livera family have been settled on the Domaine for almost 100 years, but Damien, who has been in charge for 13 years now, has taken the wines to a different level altogether. His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. At the very centre of the Gevrey commune is Le Clos Village, a vineyard that enjoyed a particularly successful cuvée in 2020. In Philippe's hands, it is full of explosive energy with a depth of flavour to rival that of the better premiers crus, and a Gevrey easily meeting the expectations of a great village cuvée. And then some. Length is particularly impressive here, with real ambition and structure to see it safely through most of its second decade.

2020 Philippe Livera (Tilleuls), Gevrey-Chambertin, Les Evocelles 6x75cl

A new find for Mr.Wheeler in the 2019 vintage and one we are pleased to follow since then; Domaine Livera is widely considered the “next Burgundian star” tellingly both by consumers of their... exceptional wines together with their winemaking contemporaries. The Livera family have been settled on the Domaine for almost 100 years, but Damien, who has been in charge for 13 years now, has taken the wines to a different level altogether. His style is one of purity, precision of fruit and impressive depth, quite reminiscent of the wines produced by Arnaud Mortet (who is a close friend and advisor). This is an up-and-coming address and very much one to watch. Opened, approachable and again with a core of red fruit, suggesting a relatively early picking for preserving freshness and poise. Contiguous with the 1er Crus, it is widely thought that Evocelles was not included in that classification only because most of the vineyard is in Brochon rather than Gevrey. Certainly the complexity and mineral finish point to a terroir of some class, and the relatively high altitude serves it well in this warm vintage. Well worth considering as a great-value option to the premiers crus.
