Gevrey-Chambertin 2010 Dinner at Steer Bar and Grill. 26 August 2013

Steer Gevrey Dinner

The first of our "Terroirs of Burgundy" Dinners ...

 

Our next Melbourne Wine Dinner is the first in a serious focusing on the different communes of Burgundy. At each dinner we will look at a range of wines from Villages, through Premier Cru and then Grand Cru levels. To finish we will taste some aged wines. Each dinner will give you an idea of the terroir of the commune and its vineyards and provide an insight into the different makers. Each dinner will be accompanied by extensive tasting notes.

 

We start with Gevrey-Chambertin, the most northerly of the major communes. The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are rich and powerful with small berry flavours, minerals and earthy notes.

 

The first bracket comprises 4 Villages wines (three of which are from specific vineyards). Bracket two comprises four Premier Crus and it is here we begin to clearly see the different soils and the effect they have on the finished product. The third bracket is a pair of Grand Crus, the top level for Burgundy. All of the wines to this point are from the superb 2010 vintage.

 

To finish we will taste a Pair of Domaine Georges Lignier Charmes-Chambertin Grand Crus from 2006 and 2002. Both are very fine vintages and they will show the effect of bottle age on the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin.

 

The wines will be accompanied by a 4-course meal at Steer Bar and Grill. In all it should be an educational and enjoyable evening.
