“A Certified Organic Gevrey-Chambertin lookalike from Domaine du Vieux Collège? This ’18 release is a screaming Burgundy deal to purchase by the truckload!”
Since 2006, Eric Guyard has managed his family’s Domaine du Vieux Collège, whose vineyards now span 25 hectares through Marsannay, Fixin, and Gevrey-Chambertin. In his tenure, Eric has focused on showcasing tiny, special sites like “Les Champs Foreys,” and propelled the estate towards its organic certification (via Ecocert) in 2014. “Les Champs Foreys,” translating to “The Foreys Fields,” is a lieu-dit in the village of Marsannay-La-Côte that brushes up against a more famous site called “Les Récilles.” By law, “Les Récilles” is a classified site for the Marsannay appellation, while “Les Champs Foreys” is not, meaning it attaches its name to the catch-all “Bourgogne” designation.

In the glass, the generosity of ‘18 is on full display: Bing cherry, black raspberry, wild strawberry, juicy plum, iron, crushed stone, violets, and a touch of sweet spice. It possesses a firm foundation of minerals and raw earth, but the voluptuousness of the vintage keeps this immensely pleasurable from start to finish. It glides across the palate with ease, but that shouldn’t be confused as a “simple” wine: there is serious, multi-textural pedigree and polish to be had here! Enjoy now and over the next five years.
