Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos du Meix des Ouches" 2000, Domaines des Varoilles
Courtesy of the Corney & Barrow Burgundy 2007 tasting. Some people consider that 2007will be similar to the 2000 vintage so it was handy to be able to taste this Gevrey 2000 and compare with the same wine from 2007. Cherry red and slightly orange rim sets up the olfactory senses for a multi-dimensional gamey (partridge, pheasant) nose blended with blood orange. Crunchy, mineral berry fruit. This wine is still very much on form and would attract Burgundy connoisseurs.
