A marvellous wine that shows the classic Gevrey concentration with a deep colour, a richly fruity aroma of mixed black and red berries, firm but graceful tannins and a smooth texture to the long finish.
Gevrey-Chambertin is the northern most of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. There are 26 Premiers Crus and 8 Grands Crus. Half of the Premiers Crus surround the Grands Crus and the other half are in the north, with clay and chalk soils.
After a complicated start to the growing season with a number of frost episodes, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged for 12-15 months in oak barrels before bottling.
