Couvent Bourgogne 2021


Winemaker Philippe Cheron’s success in the tricky 2021 vintage is a marker of unusual talent. His unmarked cuverie is hidden down a back street in Nuits-St-Georges, and Cheron himself is quiet and pensive. But his wines more than speak for themselves.

The Bourgogne rouge 2021 is from the Gevrey parcels that made up the Bourgogne from the Domaine des Varoilles, and they show much Gevrey character — bigger and denser than most wines of the genre. Burghound called it a “quality effort” and found that its “distinctly earthy nose features aromas of the sauvage, red berries and a floral top note.” Jasper Morris MW thought it “very pretty with a lively finish,” finding “rose petal perfume and white pepper spice.”
