DescriptionGeantet-Pansiot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France 2009
BURGHOUNDA very ripe and highly complex spicy red berry liqueur nose is a mix of upper and lower register aromas where the aromatic depth is the best in the range is followed by rich, full and notably sweet big-bodied flavors that are delicious and punchy, all wrapped in an extract rich finish that is also marvelously well balanced. This is really quite ripe yet it has everything it needs to age well over the next 12 to 15 years.
VINOUSWe started with the magnum of 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Le Poissenot 1er Cru from Domaine Geantet-Pansiot. This is a frustrating Burgundy producer whose excellent holdings have never quite translated into bottle. However, I thoroughly approved of this 2009. Bing cherries, punnets of freshly-picked strawberry and cassis on the nose, perhaps a bit blurred on the edges due to that summer’s warmth. The palate would have benefitted from more complexity, though Le Poissenot is not a premier league Premier Cru. There is impressive weight and an irresistible velvety texture, though it stumbles a little on the finish due to some lingering wood tannins.
