On contrast to the "Aux Echezeaux", this parcel is on the northernost side of the Gevery bordering the village of Brochon, a location that tends to produce wines of a more tannic backbone and overall structure. Displaying notable complexity for a village-level Grevey, this offers ripe black-cherry fruit and a beautifully silken texture, yet with an underlying mmineral thrust and plenty of structure to evolve well in bottle.

From the north side of the appellation, the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes exhibits aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and grilled game bird, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate, its structuring tannins entirely concealed behind a deep core of fruit that's both more concentrated and seemingly more tangy than that found in the Aux Echézeaux this year.
