DISCOVER GIVREY-CHAMBERTIN MIXED CASE
Gevrey-Chambertin, the largest commune in Burgundy's Côte de Nuits region, produces red wines from Pinot Noir in a range of styles: from elegant wines with refined red-fruit flavors, soft tannins and a velvety smooth texture, to highly concentrated and full-bodied wines. Premier and Grand Cru Gevrey-Chambertin wines are more powerful, with dark-fruit flavors and firm tannins. The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin, with their complexities of earthiness, smoke and spice, beautifully reflect the soils and climate where they are grown.
This unique Gevrey-Chambertin mixed case assortment includes 3 bottles of each plus Ground Shipping:
Domaine Thierry Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 2014
If you thought the ‘assemblage’ of the Mortet Bourgogne Rouge brought lots of different Pinot Noir strains to the cellar, get this: this Gevrey-Chambertin village is made from grapes from 20 different parcels of vines in AOC Gevrey-Chambertin! It would be hard to find a more representative example of Gevrey village’s famous diversity. Pure and open, intense blackberry and black currant, a touch of licorice. You’ll want to try it now, but keep it a few years more and you’ll be rewarded.
Domaine Pierre Naigeon Gevrey-Chambertin 'Creux Brouillard' 2012
Pierre Naigeon only makes single-vineyard wines (more than 25 different lieu-dit) that are vinified and bottled separately, without fining or filtration, to guard the pure expression of each terroir. This single-vineyard Gevrey-Chambertin 'Creux Brouillard' (which means 'foggy hollow') produced 3450 bottles in 2012. So Gevrey. Pure, floral and fruity. Great open bouquet, crisp juicy fruit, good balance and acidity, and lots of stuffing. A stellar finish.
Domaine Marchand Freres Gevrey-Chambertin 'Vieilles Vignes' 2013
‘Vieilles vignes’, old vines, have the advantage of keeping crop yields naturally low. And low crop yields mean ‘concentration’. Here we get that concentration in a Gevrey-Chambertin ‘village’ made from two contiguous ‘lieux dits’ (Pressonniers and Fourneaux) which are situated below the line of the Grand Cru to the west of the Combe Lavaux. We are talking about a classic Gevrey village spot, similar to the vineyard ‘Aux Etelois’ that is just across the way. This is Gevrey-Chambertin as we like it best.
Marchand-Tawse Gevrey Chambertin 'En Champs' 2015
The Gevrey-Chambertin single-vineyard village appellation ‘En Champs’ sits just to the north of the mouth of the Combe de Lavaux, touching on premier cru ‘Champeaux. If you are looking for the expression of Pinot Noir in Gevrey-Chambertin ‘terroir’, this is where you should be looking. Drinks way above its appellation, with sumptuous depth and bull’s-eye balance. Tannins, acidity, fruit all funnel into the mix, and the result is a beautiful glass of Gevrey-Chambertin.
