Our Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Au Closeau
The Gevrey-Chambertin 1ers Crus are matured 40% in new oak, the balance made up of casks that have undergone one vinification. Their oak comes from the Allier and the Nivernais. We favour a light to "medium plus” toast to obtain perfect harmony between the wine and oak's tannins.
This wine is a deep ruby with a delicious nose including red and black fruit and mixed spices. The blend on the palate of more cherry, vanilla and raspberry aromas ,brings freshness to this round, fleshy and silky texture. The delicacy of these aromas and the fruit on the finish make this a very charming appellation.
Serving temperature: 16 à 18°
