More than fruit here - liquorice, ripe plum, still the tonic, tannins bringing freshness. Gorgeously rich and mouthfilling. Pure, spicy, complex. More black grape-skins on the finish, an attractive bitterness from the thick-skinned grapes from these very old vines. L&S (Jan 2013)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

(from vines of 50 to 100 years of age situated in Epointures, Combe du Dessus and Les Marchais aged in 65% new wood and vinified with ~75% of the stems). There is enough reduction present that it renders the nose very difficult to assess. There is a taut muscularity to the rich, round and lush mid-palate yet there is knockout precision to the powerful, intense, balanced and brilliantly long and quite firmly structured finish. This is textbook Gevrey with a bit less minerality than the Evocelles but even better depth. Overall the two wines offer a qualitative choice as the Evocelles is more mineral-driven and the Coeur is more classic Gevrey in character. 2019+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, 2013)

50- to 102-year-old vines, 70% whole bunch, two-thirds new oak. Broad and sweet on the nose. Rich and solid but quite severe on the finish, especially in comparison with the Evocelles. Dry finish. Not charming! 2020-2032 Rating: 16.5+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - 2013)
