Domaine de la Vougeraie Gevery Chambertin 2007

The big thing about buying wine in bond is that you are supposed to stash some aside for drinking later.  Especially if, like me, you are fortunate enough to own a Combine Harvester.

So how come, I’ve already drunk 7/12 of these bottles that arrived from the Sunday Times Wine Club in August 2009 with a recommended drinking date of up to 2014?

Lovely Gevrey!  In the garage, for some reason

Well, good is good, and brilliant is brilliant, but this wine is awesome.  I can’t stop pouring it down my neck as if I was a human decanter.  Smooth yet spicy and zingy, it is everything I could wish of a Pinot Noir.  Tar, tea, cranberry and redcurrant and worth every penny of the £21 per bottle it eventually cost me.

Finally, one in the eye for the Kiwi arrivistes.

    I’m with you on this, why wait for the often doubtful benefits of age when they are so delicious fresh.

    I see you have a case of Domaine Tollot Beaut stashed away.Very wise.
    An excellent grower,and I was actually drinking their Chorey last evening.

    You have gone up a notch in my estimation

    Not to mention the 2010 vintage San Pellegrino and the case of 2009 J20!
