About the wine

Tasting notes

Vineyard planted in 1963, now 59 years old. Bottled in May 2021.Francois wanted to make this Gevrey as way of making a contrast with Chambolle and Volnay. Different ‘attitude’, he talks about the grapes needing ‘contact’ during winemaking, thus he needs to pieage that he doesn’t do with Chambolle Musigny or Volnay. Complex, elegant, powerful and structured with an awe inspiring purity of place. Make no mistake, this is one of the worlds great Pinot Noir for those in the know.
