Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru
100% Pinot Noir
North of Côte de Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin has the largest surface of vineyards of the Côte d'Or, with a total of 400 ha. Its Premiers Crus are located at the top of the Côte, between 280 and 380 m above sea level, on a limestone soil with a good amount of marl clay in the limestone soil. A hilly vineyard, Gevrey-Chambertin produces its AOC between 240 and 280 m above sea level. It should also be noted that Gevrey-Chambertin possesses nine Grands Crus and 26 Premiers Crus.
Intense garnet colour. Aromas of fresh red fruit, like gooseberry, with hints of humus on a oaky background. Impressive concentration on the palate and a persistent texture. The finish is almost rustic, with firm tannins covered by the dry extract.
