Situated about 10 Km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the first viticultural villages in the Côte de Nuits. Planted only with Pinot Noir, here with find the hierarchy of the Burgundian appellations: to the North, the premiers crus and to the South the grand crus. The village appellations are gathered on the bottom of the slope. The sparse and pebbly limestone-rich, brown-red soils give the Gevrey-Chambertin power and body. A great Côte de Nuits classic!
open-vat fermentation + 12mos oak aged
Deep red in color with complex aromas of black fruits, liquorice and leather with smoky undertones. Nice balance in the mouth with supple tannins. An elegant wine with a long finish. Tasted November 2010.
Allen Meadows, Burghound: 87pts.
An attractively fresh and unusually high-toned nose speaks of primarily red berry fruit and Gevreystyle earth nuances that introduce supple, round and fleshy flavors that possess reasonably good length if less mid-palate concentration than the better villages level wines in the range. 87/2014+
