100% Pinot Noir
Home to nine grand cru vineyards, Gevrey-Chambertain is among Burgundy’s most prestigious villages. Pascal sources from the lieux-dit Les Evocelles, located high up the hill at the northwesterly-most point in Gevrey, surrounded by Premier Cru vineyards (Champeaux and Combe aux Moines). Some speculate it was overlooked for classification due to its elevation at 400 meters.
Aged 18 months in French oak.
WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES |
The glow of youth gives the wine its lively ruby colour; with age it develops a dark carmine-red, black cherry tint. Strawberry, blackberry, violet, reseda and rose are some of the spontaneous aromas. Maturity gives the wine a bouquet of liquorice, leather and fur, with accents of game and undergrowth. In the mouth, it is the expression of a great Burgundy wine. Full and powerful, rich, strong, a body and a spirit, it asserts itself on a firm structure, velvety tannins, expressed with a very fine grain, without hardness. Pleasant when young, and to be enjoyed for its fruitiness, but above all it is a wine for keeping, often for a long time, excellent for learning about vintages.
