||Gevrey Chambertin is located in the "Côte de Nuits". The grapes stem from a selected plot in the northern part of Appellation "Gevrey Chambertin" located on a mid slope and bordering the Premiers Crus.
||The Vintage 2011: After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by rainy intervals which early september gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. Long and careful macerations have allowed to enhance the fleshy texture and smooth and elegant tannins of the Pinot Noir.
|Composition of the land
||Mix of Clay and limestone.
||Grapes enter the fermentation vats in whole bunches for improved temperature control, gradual release of the sugars, and a more refined tannic structure. Cold pre-fermentation maceration is followed by a long alcoholic fermentation for greater depth and expression of the wine's structural elements.
||Excellent if paired with game, poultry and all the classic cheeses (Epoisses, Langres).
