From three parcels with vines that have an average of 65 years, Geoffroy's VV cuvée draws its depth and structure from well-sited vines in the outstanding terroirs of En Champs, Combe du Dessus and Champerrier, all on the northern, Brochon side of the village. Vinified with a touch more new oak than the Gevrey villages (40%), this is an altogether, deeper and denser expression of Gevrey, reflecting the old vines and the powerful terroir of the Brochon side of Gevrey. Yes indeed, the 2015 is outstanding.
The 2015 displays a striking inner-mouth perfume and a gorgeous floral overlay which nicely counterbalances its firmly structured, densely fruited personality. 30% new oak.

Top Value. Outstanding. This is the first wine to display any material level of reduction but it's enough to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise there is excellent volume and intensity to the rich, bold and full-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract that helps to buffer the notably firm tannins on the beautifully long finish. This robust effort is an excellent Gevrey villages but patience definitely required.
