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 possesses the most complex nose in the range with its plethora of spice, menthol, earth, humus and very fresh assortment of dark berry fruit scents. There is excellent volume and punch to the sleekly muscular and powerful medium weight plus flavors that possess fine cut on the balanced and quite firm finale that delivers outstanding length. Unlike the Poissenot though this beauty is unlikely to drink well before at least 10 years have passed. Tasted: Jan 2015; Drink: 2025+; Issue: 57; Rating: 93 Points; Allen Meadows Burghound
