“Harmand-Geoffroy is a one-stop-shop for all things Gevrey-Chambertin, from village-level to Grand Cru. And yet, despite their storied history, their prime vineyard holdings, and the consistency and longevity of their wines, their prices have remained shockingly reasonable.”
I’m having a hard time making sense of this wine: It comes from Harmand-Geoffroy, one of the acknowledged masters of Gevrey-Chambertin, as well as one of the most undervalued blue-chip producers in all of Burgundy. it is sourced from their monopole (solely owned) Premier Cru vineyard, “La Bossiere,” from which they produce very little wine; and only about 300 bottles of it make it to the US each vintage. This is our first-ever crack at this ephemeral Gevrey-Chambertin beauty, and if all the above weren’t already enough, here are two more noteworthy items to add to the laundry list: (1) it’s got some nice bottle age and (2) it hails from 2014, one of our favorite red Burgundy vintages of the last decade.  The 2014 vintage is often described as a “classic” (i.e. structured rather than ultra-ripe), so some extra time in bottle has really enhanced this edition of “La Bossiere.” In the glass, it’s a deep garnet-red extending to a pink (and ever-so-slightly orange) rim, with perfumed aromas of red and black cherry, woodland berries, damp violets, black tea, trumpet mushrooms, warm spice, and lots of underbrush. Medium-bodied and full of delicious tension, it has begun to knit together nicely but still has a long life ahead of it.
