2013 Philippe Livera Gevrey-Chambertin 'Evocelles'

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

"Evocelles," meaning "the little valleys," is a postage stamp of a Gevrey village vineyard, tucked way up in the northwest corner of the appellation, perched above the Premiers Crus "Les Goulots" and "Champeaux." It faces due south, which makes all the difference in cooler years like 2013. Damien acquired this parcel in 2010. Look for notes of anise, a faint prosciutto-like gaminess, and bright red fruits. Paté and triple-cream cheeses, please.

How do you know Philippe Livera is a no-nonsense farmer and winemaker? Just before you descend into his frigid cellar in Gevrey-Chambertin, there's what appears to be an old bathtub and an array of intimidating implements… it's a deer cleaning station (as evidenced by the homemade venison links that dangle above his barrels). It's his version of vineyard pest control. His hands-on approach extends to his grapes with several of his vineyard parcels just steps from his front door, and with his impossibly long and slow malolactic fermentations - seriously, his cellar is bone-chilling - he coaxes the maximum complexity from his precious grapes. Just don't wander among his vines wearing antlers…
