I have recommended the Burgundy producer of Geantet-Pansiot before, thinking a lot of its wines are offering good value for money.  With its 2008 Geantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes on special in Watsons Wine Cellar at HK$348, it seems another good choice.

This bottle of 2008 Geantet-Pansiot Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is produced from vine with an average age of over 60 years old.  The wine has really strong intensity of aromas and I can smell it from a distance of over a feet in a busy Chinese restaurant!  Red fruits, floral, earthy and dried herb.  Muscular and intense in palate with good concentration.  This is a wine with rustic style instead of elegant.  For the price of just about HK$300, this is really good even though the finish is a bit drying.  What is strange to me is that its producer Vincent Geantet thinks vintage 2008 is very similar to 1986 but without the problem of drying finish as 1986?!

Purchase Watsons Wine Cellar (Original HK$420 / Reduced HK$348)
