Third generation vigneron, Vincent Géantet heads this Gevrey-Chambertin based domaine farming 12 hectares of vines up to 65 years of age, in the North of the Côte de Nuits covering the appellations of Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny and Marsannay. The vineyards are farmed lutte raisonée and fruit is rigorously sorted before aging in 30% new oak for all cuvées from the Bourgogne Rouge through to the Charmes-Chambertin. All of the cuvées are bottled without fining or filtration. Graceful wines showing aromatic purity are the hallmark of this estate and many wine critics have earmarked Domaine Géantet-Pansiot as a producer to follow closely in the future.
This also displays a slight hint of menthol on the pure and expressive aromas that are comprised mostly of extract of cassis and anise nuances. There is a lovely freshness and excellent complexity to the mineral-inflected, dense and powerful middle weight flavors that also possess a beguiling mouth feel before terminating in a palate coating and impressively long finish. While it's not hard to see the relationship to Bonnes Mares this is still a relatively elegant example of Baudes.
