Nose: Distinguished and complex, slightly woody, with hints of vanilla and red and black fruits (blackcurrants, raspberries and Morello cherries). Animal notes of musk and fur.
Palate: Full-bodied, with ageing potential, long and persistent. As the wine develops the presence of red fruits is confirmed, with a sub-structure of liquorice. Gevrey wines are noted for their strong character and intense, expressive aromas - powerful but extremely mellow.
Food and wine pairing
The famouse area of Gevrey-Chambertin produces only red wines and extends over 406 hectares, 86 of which are classified as Premier Cru.
Vinification and maturing
Maceration lasts around 3 weeks, with more-or-less frequent cap punching
The wine is aged in the cask for sixteen to eighteen months, using a fairly low proportion of new casks (under 20%).
Lastly, the wine is bottled with very light filtration.
