Glowing fresh purple. A beautiful nose very classic Bachelet. Light on its feet but with a sensual energy and just a little touch of pepper at the finish. This takes me back to Bachelet wines of the 1980s before they became so concentrated. Fine attractive red fruit finish. Drink from 2025-2032.

The 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes has such a pretty nose that disguises the trauma of the growing season: ebullient redcurrant white-tipped strawberry and light stony scents. The palate is taut and fresh just the right amount of countervailing bitterness with a lively finish. Just a lovely Gevrey. (Drink between 2024-2034)

Wine Advocate: 90-91 Points

Incorporating the domaine's holdings in Les Evocelles once again due to low yields Bachelet's 2021 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes bursts with scents of raspberries peonies plums orange zest and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied fleshy and vibrant with melting tannins and an enveloping core of fruit it's a pretty classic in the making.
