DESCRIPTION

Burghound 91 Outstanding. "This is very ripe yet quite fresh with its layered mélange of liqueur-like raspberry, cassis and violet aromas that are also trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. The succulent, vibrant and well-detailed medium weight flavors are underpinned by bright acidity on the relatively refined finish that delivers solid length. This mildly austere effort is unusually ripe for what is normally a very cold terroir." John Gilman 92 "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin "la Bousière" from Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy is also a lovely example of the vintage, but it was a tad behind some of the other wines in the cellar in terms of elevage and had not yet fully integrated its new wood component, despite the fact that only thirty percent was new this year. But, this is just a passing phase and the wine will be excellent. The bouquet offers up scents of black cherries, cassis, espresso, woodsmoke, gamebird, a fine base of soil and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a superb core, lovely transparency, ripe tannins and a long, youthful and chewy finish. This will be very elegant in the fullness of time." Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 89  "The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru La Bossière from Harmand-Geoffroy is the brightest, leanest wine in the cellar, offering up a high-toned bouquet of raspberry and cranberry, and a taut, chalky palate impression built around a bright spine of acidity. This premier cru, a monopole of the domaine, may once have been planted to white varieties, and one can see why."  Importer Neal Rosenthal "A unique and striking wine in the Harmand-Geoffroy arsenal, "La Bossiere" is a 0.45 premier cru -- the smallest premier cru in Gevrey-situated at the very top of the Combe de Lavaux, a parcel owned in its entirety by the Harmand family. At this extreme part of the slope, nearly nonexistent topsoil and a cooler average temperature tend to lead to a wine of drive and focus rather than sheer power. In 2015, this shows the vintage's succulence and is perhaps slightly less racy than usual, but it finds a real sweet spot between fruit and acidity, shimmering with tension on the long, penetrating finish. 40% new oak."
