2014 Gevrey Chambertin 'Symphonie', Domaine Burguet, Burgundy, France
Aromas of pure raspberries and damsons with spice. The palate is concentrated with ripe, sweet fruit flavours, chocolate and spice, The tannins are smooth and silky giving texture and structure to this skilfully crafted wine.
Winemaking at Domaine Burguet is traditional. After a very soft (100%) destemming, the grapes go through a second sorting table, the goal being of course to let in only the best grapes. The wine is vinified with the natural yeasts which are present on the skin, no enzymes or any other additive added. No fining, no filtration. Very long elevage, 18 months in casks. Minimal SO2 dosage. They want the wine to express both the fruit and the millesime and they let the wine vinify without forcing it into a mold. No temperature control is used.
