This delicious Gevrey is drawn from multiple small parcels across the village. The youngest vines for this cuvée are 25 years of age with the oldest being 60 years old. Crafted from less than generous yields, raised in 20% new oak, Phillipe Harmand has done a terrific job tempering this wines natural exuberance with stylish texture and refreshment.

"This is also exuberantly fresh with its expressive nose that is comprised of black raspberry, plum and soft earth nuances. There is fine intensity to the well detailed medium weight flavors that also possess a saline hint before culminating in a lingering, balanced and solidly complex finale." 88-91 points. - Burghound

Importer Note:

In many ways Gevrey produces the primordial red Burgundy: Burgundy that defines the style of other communes, by comparison, Burgundy that marries true power and structure with elegance and perfume. This is mountain Pinot, from rocky soils high up on the Côte, just below the woods. Gevrey is also the most northerly of the famed Côte d’Or villages and it is this northern climate, along with the many high, windswept vineyards that gives this commune’s wines their often “pretty yet firm” personality when they are young. Gérard Harmand and his son Philippe produce archetypal Gevrey Chambertin from a superb range of terroirs. They have remarkable, old vine holdings in Lavaux St Jacques, Champeaux, Perrière and La Bossiere (Monopole), as well as a healthy slice of the Grand Cru Mazis Chambertin. If you love classic Gevrey with site transparency, lifted aromatics, fresh, crunchy fruit and fine, powdery tannins, then these wines are for you.

Many changes have occurred at this Domaine over the last five years. Only perfect fruit now makes it into the wines and very gentle handling of fruit, must and wine is the order of the day. There is now a strict sorting of bunches in the vineyard and then again via a sorting table, when the grapes arrive in the winery. Tannin and colour extraction now occurs via gentle pump-overs as opposed to punch-downs. This results in far finer tannins. Also, all mechanical pumps have been removed from the winery and now gas pressure and gravity are used to move the must/wine. The wines are also moved as little as possible. With top-drawer fruit and now with more attention to detail in the winery, this Domaine’s star is certainly on the rise. The wines are now much stronger, more intense and are a joy to drink. And while quality has only risen since 2005, prices remain truly modest: testament to the integrity of this Domaine.
