TN: 2006 Antonin Guyon Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine de la Guyonnière

Opened this one last night after the 98 Grivot turned up corked. Took some time to open up but at hour 5 it was starting to show promise. I’m still green when it comes to Burgs and am basically getting my feet wet. This one was OK but not memorable by any stretch of the imagination. And the journey continues…

  • 2006 Antonin Guyon Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine de la Guyonnière - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin (9/25/2012)
    Open for 4+ hours on night 1 and recorked. Notes from night 2.
    13% abv Transparent ruby with bricking edges. Nose heavy on sweet strawberry preserves, cherry liqueur, smoke and touch of orange zest. Palate is kind of primary with cherry kool-aid, a little spice, decent texture, green tannins that persist though the finish.
    Alcohol, fruit and tannins in balance but kinda low on the acid. Not sure where this will wind up in a few years unless the acid is hiding somewhere.
