A large village located at the beginning of the Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin has one of the largest areas of planted vines: no fewer than 815 acres in production. Altitude varies between 787 and 919 feet. The soils are limestone, with a good proportion of clay marl originating in scree from the Combe de Lavaux, giving concentration and roundness.
The grapes for this wine came from several vineyards located north of the village on the famed Brochon which produces Gevrey’s finest “Village” wines.
Aged on the lees for 15 months with no racking using a proportion of 30% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.
Very elegant notes of oak and black fruit.
Bold character with firm tannins, lovely length and an elegant finish.
