Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice 2015 and 2016 - Premier Cru Quality at Villages Price. Almost Gone

Serious Red Burgundy from the superb 2015 and 2016 vintages
Premier Cru Quality at a Villages Price!
 
The Gevrey lieu-dit La Justice is an interesting vineyard. In theory it is located on the wrong side of the road - east of the D974. However, a fault line allows a base of limestone to come into play and the sandy top soil allows excellent drainage of what is otherwise a flat site.
 
The vineyard has been highly regarded for a long time and is considered one of the finest lieu-dits in Gevrey-Chambertin. The wine produced is frequently of Premier Cru quality with dark fruit and mineral-infused flavours. The wine has an elegance with the power delivered by the best wines of Gevrey-Chambertin.
Albert Bichot says "La Justice" is a very old vineyard that is located in the middle and the best part of the alluvial fan, which combines all of the geological matter that has been moved down through the valley over the millennia. "La Justice" owes its name to the fact that these vineyards belonged to the Lord of Gevrey, the Abbot of Cluny, who had all of the power in this part of the land that had been given to him. Here, "justice" means "jurisdiction" from the Latin JURISDICTIO, or "the right to administer justice", and by extension, power, authority, control.
Domaine Felettig own parcels totalling 0.39 hectares which produces a wine that is always complex and interesting. John Gilman describes the wine as "quite clearly of premier cru quality".
 
Today we offer the 2015 and 2016 vintages from Domaine Felettig and the 2015 from Albert Bichot. The quantities available are very small.

Felettig Gevrey
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin la Justice has a pastille-like purity on the nose, not complex but nicely focused with black cherries, blueberry and iodine scents gently unfolding, the 10% whole bunch deftly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin. This is nicely focused with well-judged acidity, caressing and silky towards the long finish. If there is any justice, this should be in your cellar. 90-92 Points

La Justice 2016

Felettig Gevrey
John Gilman, A View from the Cellar: La Justice is one of my favorite villages level vineyards in all of Gevrey and Monsieur Felettig has made an excellent example of this fine terroir in 2016. The bouquet is pure and sappy, offering up scents of red plums, red and black cherries, cocoa, a fine base of dark soil tones, mustard seed and a nice touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very transparent in profile, with a sappy core, suave tannins and a long, poised and quite vibrant finish. This is a beautiful village wine in the making. 2023-2060. 91 Points
Albert Bichot Gevrey-Chambertin 
La Justice 2015
Normally $133.95
Special $113.50
11 Bottles available
 
Bichot La Justice label
Producer: Aromas of red fruit on the nose (black cherry, blackberry). Subtle hints of oak are complemented by notes of liquorice. Over time, notes of spices, forest undergrowth, even musky notes will develop. This wine is silky, structured, tannic and well-balanced on the palate. The finish features all the fruitiness of the nose.

Darren Harris: Bright red. Nose of sweet, cool red berries especially mulberry, liquorice and minerally earth. The palate is full and mouthfilling with the elements from the nose and a lick of limestone. Quite generous in style finishing with fine acid and tannin.

Cheron Seuvrees label

Domaine Philippe Cheron Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrees 2015
12 bottles available

Les Seuvrees is another well sited vineyard. It lies right on the Morey border below the Grand Cru Mazoyeres-Chambertin. 

Darren Harris: Les Seuvrees lies right on the Morey border below the Grand Cru Mazoyeres-Chambertin. A deeply aromatic nose with a sense of structure. A real surprise package on the palate. Less earth and more plums than the Champonnets. Cool. Powerful, restrained and with fine, long tannins. For a lieu-dit this has real depth and presence. I have said before that I think Gevrey-Chambertin was the standout commune in 2015 and this wine supports my thoughts. Terrific quality for the price. Bravo!

Normally $127.50
Special $108.35

Grivot Vougeot label
 
Domaine Jean Grivot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 1998
 
We all know that Clos Vougeot requires long cellaring to reach its drinking window. Here is a 21 year old examples from a fine domaine that should be hitting its straps!

Burghound: As young Clos de Vougeot often is, this wine is a good deal less generous now than the '98 Echézeaux and is borderline austere yet there is plenty of solid material beneath the sober veneer. There is good sappy pinot extract with big, heavily soil inflected flavors and good length. A big wine needing 10 to 12 years to resolve its structure but it should amply reward the patient. 92 Points

6 bottles available.

$275.00 a bottle
