100% Pinot Noir


Gevrey-Chambertin is a large town located at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits. It boasts one of the largest surface acres under vine with no less than 330 hectares under production, of which 82 are planted with Premiers Crus. The vines are planted at altitudes of between 240 and 280 metres. The soil is limestone-based with a high proportion of clay marlstones from the scree of the Combe de Lavaut, giving power and roundness to the wines. The “Les Murots” climate is located on the low slope of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Vineyard Selection and Management 


This wine comes from vineyards which have been carefully chosen based on strict requirements: old vines which naturally produce fewer grapes and more importantly, small grapes. These small bunches always guarantee good concentration of the future wine. Vine-growing techniques are also very particular: limited yields due to severe de-budding, green harvest if needed, working of the soil, absence of fertilizers, environmentally friendly pest management which respects beneficial wildlife.

Vinification and Maturing
Harvest date: September the 21st 2014. The grapes were handpicked and collected in 20-kg perforated crates. They were sorted a first time in the vineyard and a second time on the sorting table when they arrived at the winery. At the winery: the grapes were completely destemmed but not crushed (they were left whole) and were gravity-fed into tanks. Maceration lasted a total of 23 days including one week of cold maceration (12°C). Fermentation used indigenous yeasts only (no additives such as enzymes or tannins were used). Infrequent punching of the cap (8 maximum). In the cellar: aged on the lees for 16 months with no racking using a proportion of 30% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine. Bottling: the wine was very gently filtered, unfined, before being bottled using gravity in January 2016.
