  • A well-structured Gevrey-Chambertin with red cherry and plum flavours through to a firm, vegetal finish. 2021 was a very challenging vintage across the Burgundy region. A significant frost hit during April, which dramatically affected the yields. High rainfall and cool temperatures throughout summer required vigilance in the vineyard to ensure disease did not take hold. However, the remaining fruit has matured, and the 2021 wines offer a clean and light style with fresh fruit flavours and characteristic minerality. 

Vinified with minimal intervention. The grapes were carefully sorted and destemmed. The whole berries were fermented in temperature controlled tanks for 15 to 20 days. The wine was tasted daily, in order to determine the required amount of pigeage, (punching down of the cap); and ‘remontage’ (pumping over), in order to obtain the desired levels of colour, aroma and flavour extraction. When fermentation was complete, the wine was gently pressed and transferred into barrels, of which one third were new, for 12 to 15 months. Malolactic conversion took place in the barrel. The wine was lightly filtered, prior to being bottled.

A well structured Gevrey-Chambertin with a good depth of flavour and a firm, savoury finish.

The grapes for this Gevrey-Chambertin come from the “lieu-dit” or named plots of ‘les Champs Chenys’, ‘aux Chezeaux’ and ‘les Seuvrées’. The vines were planted in 1901, 1966 and 1921 respectively and the old vines are low yielding, producing berries full of concentrated flavours. Their deep root systems penetrate the layers of soil imparting complexity to the wine. The vines are cultivated according to “la lutte rainsonnée”, using sustainable agricultural methods in order to respect the land and its environment. Pesticides and herbicides are not used in the cultivation of the vines; instead a regular
tilling of the soil is performed to remove weeds. The vines are farmed using organic preparations, although they are not certified organic. The grapes are hand-harvested, selecting only the ripest grapes.
