Domaine Pierre Gelin Gevrey-Chambertin Clos de Meixvelle 2018 / 750 ml.

Item#: 96997

WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2021
Wisps of freshly picked violets and crisp black plums gain ripeness and concentration in this mineral Pinot Noir. Vinified via indigenous yeast and matured for 20 to 24 months in used oak, it’s penetrating in fruit yet sheer and crystalline, edged by a salty spray of crushed stone and fine-tipped tannins that linger on the finish. Beautiful already, the wine should improve through 2030 and hold further.

Pierre Gelin expanded his family’s domaine in Fixin by purchasing vineyards in the neighboring village of Gevrey-Chambertin. He had been farming Clos de Meixvelle since the 1940s, and replanted it after buying the monopole in 1952. The vines, now 70 years old, are farmed organically by his grandson Pierre-Emmanuel, and the concentration of their fruit is apparent in the lovely freshness and density of this Gevrey. It’s a wine of power and elegance, with red and black fruit woven into the silken texture. A village-level wine to cellar as you would a premier cru.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2021
Effusive aromas and flavors of black cherry, black currant, violet, sandalwood, graphite and oak spice permeate this opulent red. It’s silky and harmonious, with refined tannins and a long finish. Drink now through 2035. 830 cases made, 300 cases imported.

Where It's From

Region / Burgundy

View more wines from Burgundy

In eastern France lies the region of Burgundy, one of the legendary wine regions of the world. Burgundy, home to some of the most expensive wines in the world, is famous for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With very few exceptions, red Burgundy is made from 100% Pinot Noir. And the reigning white of Burgundy, Chardonnay, can vary incredibly in style depending on where it was produced within the region.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

This is smoky, featuring spicy, torrefied aromas that overlay juicy cherry and plum flavors. Deftly balanced, with a distinct iron note, ending in a long, fruit-, spice- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2028. 850 cases made, 300 cases imported.

RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 9th Jan 2020
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux Saint-Jacques is elegant and perfumed this year, bursting with aromas of peonies, orange rind, wild berries and cassis. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied and fine-boned, less lavishly textural and more introverted than the Champeaux this year, structured around supple, powdery tannins and succulent acids.

The 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with aromas of dark berry fruit, woodsmoke, plums, dark chocolate, licorice and spices. Full-bodied and layered, it’s deep and concentrated, with a muscular, introverted profile and a long, lively finish. This is a serious, structured Mazis from Roty, and it will take time to show all its cards.
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2020
The 2018 Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru is well defined on the nose, featuring graphite-infused black fruit laced with aromas of Christmas cake and loam. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, slightly tarry black fruit and some vanilla-y new oak on the finish that will require several years to be fully subsumed. Very good length but patience required.

Another fine cuvée is the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur Bas, a wine derived from the part of this lieux-dit classified at the communal level, where Roty observes his grapes are always especially thick skinned. Offering up aromas of cherries, raspberries, cassis and rose petals, framed by toast oak, it’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated and muscular, with the most depth and structure of Roty’s three lieux-dits.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2020
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur Bas is very well defined on the nose, suggesting a mixture of around two-thirds black and one-third red fruit, laced with orange peel and light pain d’épices aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, layered black cherry and boysenberry fruit and graphite and light fig notes. White pepper lingers toward the finish, which fans out nicely. Excellent.

The 2018 Côte de Nuits-Villages exhibits aromas of cherries, wild plums and cassis mingled with hints of loamy soil and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it’s serious and tightly wound, with fine depth at the core and chalky structuring tannins. As I’ve written before, this cuvée derives from vines in the lieu-dit of Queue de Hareng in Brochon, neighboring Denis Bachelet’s.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2020
The 2018 Côte de Nuits-Villages has a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, which is a little savory in style and suggests a touch of melted tar. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, a fine bead of acidity and very good tension toward the chalky-textured finish. Excellent.
