Cruse Gevrey Chambertin 1977 75cl

SKU: 43173
Gevrey Chambertin is one of THE iconic wines of Burgundy, situated as it is, next door to Nuits St Georges. Whilst the 1970's was a difficult decade for the Cote de Nuits, this 1977 vintage is rare and would make a classy 1977 themed gift.

    About

    Gevrey Chambertin is synonymous with names such as La Tâche, La Romanée, Richebourg and Romanée-Conti, all of which offer the very best wine experience at mind-blowing prices. With a case of La Tâche 1999 costing about the same as a new Mercedes Benz E-Class, it is little wonder that these wines are revered and that wine enthusiasts around the world yearn to find the next super-star before the critics and market forces send the price sky high. Sadly however, the rhetoric that accompanies wines from this area often results in prices that are unjustified and unfair to the average punter who has just blown the equivalent of a week's housekeep on a special treat which turns out to be not that special, however...

    Pinot Noir, from which all reds from Gevrey Chambertin (and the rest of Burgundy for that matter) are made, has the capacity to deliver liquid nectar. Well-made red Burgundies can also live for decades with many outliving the wine-maker. It is a difficult and temperamental variety to grow and a wine can be ruined by a few days rain just before the harvest or by a scorchingly hot summer with no rain. In a good vintage with the right amount of sun and precipitation, most producers will be smiling and proudly presenting the fruits of their efforts to critics and consumers alike. However, the difference between a good and bad vintage can be as fickle as a week's rain at the end of the season. Some growers may titter behind their neighbour's back if they see them harvesting a little early, only to have the smile wiped off their face when it starts to rain the day after their neighbour has finished their harvest - rightly so too as the difference between these two neighbours' wines can be monumental.

    Our Views

    This is a great wine from a difficult vintage though we are unable to provide any tasting notes, sorry. That said, this is one of THE areas for the very best Burgundies, the wine is very competitively priced and its overall appearance is great.
