Manuel Olivier’s story is one that ferments the further continuance of the art of wine as he represents a collection lead wine makers, who fall under the age of 40, and are relentlessly passionate about the art. His Gervey-Chambertin 2008 (Pinot Noir) is a veritable showing of how his skill in the art of wine making has progressed over time. He is certainly on our ‘must follow’ list.
On colour, Manuel Olivier’s Gervey-Chambertin 2008 holds a fantastic eggplant purple hue. On the nose, you pick up scents of black current, blackberry, cranberries and even some dark chocolate, all coming through a mild intensity. On the palate, herbaceousness blended with dark fruit tastes, makes this a solid drink.
Though this wine is a Pinot Noir, you’ll find it to be more weightier than the Pinot Noir’s you are mostly familiar with, making this a robust pairing match, with lamb and even some choice steak cuts.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $39.35.
We gave this wine a score of 4.5 out of 5.
