Gevrey-Chambertin bottle

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.

November 7, 2018 | Decanter
Sourced from Aux Echézeaux, in the south-eastern corner of Gevrey-Chambertin close to Morey-St-Denis, this is the third vintage of this village wine from the Jean-Claude Boisset team. Fermented with 50% whole bunches, it's fresh, aromatic and tangy with good focus and precision and the density and complexity of a premier cru.

  • Winemaking

    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.

  • Nose

    Very elegant notes of oak and black fruit.

  • Palate

    Bold character with firm tannins, lovely length and an elegant finish.
