Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest appellation in Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin is also one of the most famous wines in France.
This wine is what I'll call a absolutely cunnilingus (a new word I learnt from a friend) wine. Not only it's lip-licking-good (intended pun), it's also a glass-licking-good burgundy. Honestly, of all the Burgundy I've had, I must say this one is very impressive. It's has got a fruity, licorice and some hints of cocoa. The finish was good and it's certainly worth the 4 figure price tag.
Musigny Vielles Vignes from Comte George de Vogue is one of Burgundy's TOP WINES. The nose is a fantastic complex mix of blackberries, spice, cedar, soy, anise and dried herbs followed by full-bodied, multi-layered flavors of amazing length. Very well balanced. This is also a 4 figure price tag bottle. However, I like the Chambertin more than this.
To complete the enjoyment, I had a Cohiba Maduro 5 Secretos paired with the Burgundy. I find the cigar very complex but it did give a smooth draw. Besides some cocoa aromas, there's also some hints of cedar. The size might be small but it will give you a 30-45 minutes of pleasure.
I am very delighted to be able to taste some of the world's best wine that night. It was indeed a honour to be invited for the dinner and I really appreciate the generous friends I have. Therefore, I hope they would make more money in their business so that I get to try the Romanee Conti and La Tache! Hehe.... (I know you guys are reading this!)
