Appellation: Gevrey-Chambertin ' Vigne Belle' (Burgundy region)

 

Grapes: Pinot Noir (100%)

 

Farming: Organic

 

Aromatics: Smokiness with complex earthy notes, with loads of blackberries and oak spices.

 

Palate: Soft, fleshy on the palate with lovely volume, blackberries and fine tannins. Complexity and a length similar to the 1er Cru from Gevrey. Purity and elegance, with no over extraction but still plenty of character. This is a must have if you like Gevrey-Chambertin's wines.

 

About the wine: This wine is made out of small plots of 40 and 30 acres averaging 30 years old, with only 3000 to 3500 bottles yearly. The vines are planted on clay and limestone soils with small rocks, producing one of the finest expressions at village level. 'Vigne Belle' is not a 1er Cru however it’s a standout site with a unique personality, not far from 1er Cru Clos Prieur.

 

When to drink: Now or in the next 10 years.

 

Service: 15 to 16 degrees C, large Burgundy glass. Decant when young.

 

Food match: A slow cooked stew, duck breast or duck legs.
