Site : Gevrey Chambertin is located in the "Côte de Nuits". The grapes stem from a selected plot in the northern part of Appellation "Gevrey Chambertin" located on a mid slope and bordering the Premiers Crus. The grapes are sourced from a partner winegrower. Picking of the grapes by our teams.
The Vintage 2019 : After a mild winter, spring settled down with important variations of temperatures and abundant rain which engendered millerandage (small berries). Summer was warm punctuated by several heat waves and a few thunderstorms épisodes which brought some water. The harvest started mid september under a bright sunshine. After a whole cluster fermentation in vat, the wines are aged in oak casks for a period of 15 up to 18 months in our XVth century cellar. Moderate use of new oak.
Tasting : Dark ruby colour. Intense aromas of black berries and plum on a hint of vanilla. Complex with a lot of energy. Tight and dense texture. Long and generous aftertaste.
Food pairing : Game (pheasant), poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
