Our Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Clos-Prieur
The Gevrey-Chambertin Premiers Crus are matured in 40% new oak barrels and barrels previously used for one wine made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions. We favour light to medium-plus toasts as this ensures the perfect harmony between the wine and wood tannins.
Its deep and lively cherry red colour reflects the predominance of mostly black and stewed fruit. Its consistent and tender tannins convey sweetness to the palate. Aromas of peppery vanilla and Morello cherry are present. This is a precise wine that offers a silky finish.
Serving temperature: 16° to 18°C
Matching food: Stuffed capon with ceps, pike-perch with crispy skin
