Situated next to Mazis-Chambertin and planted with vines that are 45 years-old. Ripe and charming, with a sweet, seductive fruit and very fine tannins. A truly distinctive Gevrey that almost recalls a Chambolle-Musigny. The parcel is just 3/4 of an acre so production is a mere drop!

"The premier cru of La Perriere is beautifully situated just downslope from the lower section of Mazis-Chambertin, but one does not see a lot of it on the market. The 2008 from Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy is excellent, as it jumps from the glass in a classy melange of red and black cherries, a touch of blood orange, meaty tones, mustard seed, woodsmoke, black minerality and a deft touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very racy in personality, with a superb core of fruit, suave tannins and great length and grip on the tangy and very transparent finish. These are forty-five year-old vines and I am sure the very healthy age of the vines helps deliver such a strikingly classic expression of terroir. A beautiful wine in the making. 2018-2045+." 92+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
