Top 10 wines in the UK press8th May, 2013 by Andy Young
2008 Gevrey- Chambertin en Jouise, Domaine Harmand Geoffroy
MacQuitty recommends this wine as a “keeper”, she wrote: “Gérard Harmand spent his childhood in London and didn’t take over at his family’s estate, situated at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits, until the early l990s. Yet in two decades, he has turned the domaine around, getting the best from his patch of dirt, or terroir — that vital Burgundian sense of place — making vibrant, fruit-filled burgundies that have wide appeal.
“Tuck into this delicious, oaky, plum, game, herb and liquorice-licked red Burgundy that is drinking deliciously now and you can taste for yourself. Or cellar until 2016 when richer, gamier flavours will be your reward.”
