"Relatively intense nose. Pretty chewy palate but lots of fresh fruit there. 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: There are several possible explanations regarding the origin of the name Gevrey: is it derived from the Gallic "Gibriacus" or from the combe de Lavaut, "Gaba" in Latin meaning "gorge". The name "Gevrey" first appeared in 1219. Soil: Filling limestones, limestones with entrocs, cone pebbles. Our plot: We have 8 Gevrey-Chambertin parcels situated in the following lieu-dits: En Combe, En Champs, En Vignes Belles, Croix des Champs, En Jouise, En Pallud, Aux Mairchais and Aux Epointures. The surface area of our Gevrey-Chambertin parcels amounts to 4 hectares. Our Gevrey-Chambertin is matured in oak barrels previously used for one wine made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions, with medium to medium-plus toasts. With a fine color and visual aspect and good texture, on the palate the Gevrey-Chambertin leaves a sensation of freshness with a delicate body and slight woody hints. Its tannins are melted in a tender and silky texture that highlight its aromatic refinement and subtlety. Serving temperature: between 16 ° and 18 ° C. Food pairing: Epoisses pie, beef fondue.
