Gevrey-Chambertin bottle

Gevrey-Chambertin is at the foot of the Combe de Lavaux, a small valley which is known for bringing in cool air that keeps the vines healthy and contributes to slow ripening.  Gevrey-Chambertin was Napoleon's favorite wine. The Count of Las Cases, whose collection of memoirs recounting his interaction with Napoleon, noted that, “for fifteen years the Emperor constantly drank the same wine, which he liked and which we believed was good for him”.

Rich and juicy, offering cherry, raspberry and spice flavors that coat the palate, while earth and tobacco accents add detail. Features a line of fine tannins underneath but, for now, this is all about fleshy fruit. Shows fine harmony, polish and length. Best from 2024 through 2037. - Bruce Sanderson
  • Winemaking

    Grapes were 70% de-stemmed and not crushed. No yeast was added. The wine was aged for 14 months in Cîteaux oak barrels, of which 36% were new oak.

  • Nose

    Slightly high toned aromas and red currant, raspberry, licorice, pepper and herbs.

  • Palate

    Sleek mouth feel, nicely integrated acidity, an attractive touch of sweetness on the finish.
