Wine for laying down, but can be appreciated when young after carafing for several hours before serving. Bernard's wines are so intense because they are so concentrated from the juice that goes into the wine. That Bernard is a genius in vinifying Pinot Noir doesn't hurt either.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Coeur du Roi, from vines ranging from 50-100 years of age, powers through the palate with superb density and focus. This shows terrific depth and richness, but it, too, is painfully young. Still, it is impossible not to admire the wine's sheer precision and fabulous overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2023.

Wine SpectatorA suave, rich, smoky red, featuring plenty of toasty oak over black cherry and blackberry notes. There's a slight tartness, but also ample flesh and a long, spicy finish. Best from 2013 through 2021. 25 cases imported.
