Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Expressive and spicy, featuring sandalwood, rose hip, olive and vanilla notes, allied to wild cherry and raspberry fruit. Elegant, silky and intense, with fine balance and a long, saturated aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2037.

COMMENTARY: I have many Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice, from various producers, over the years. The 2017 Domaine Marc Roy is an excellent example of wines from this site. TASTING NOTES: This wine is sturdy on the palate. Its explosive aromas and flavors of black fruit are generous and dense. Pair it with roasted lamb shanks. (Tasted: March 11, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Domaine Marc Roy, France
Alexandrine Roy is the 4th generation of the Roy family to farm her holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin and Marsannay. This is a tiny domaine of just four hectares that is meticulously cared for as if it was a personal garden. Alexandrine is a true farmer, consistently ploughing the soils of her old- vine vineyards (many of which are more than 100 years old) to allow the roots to dig deep into the shallow limestone. The resulting wines from these delicately cared for plots show a lovely purity and elegance that have garnered the domaine praise from around the world. Through minimal intervention and extraction, Alexandrine allows her old vines to express themselves with immense depth of flavor and clarity. For the uninitiated – and there seem to be fewer and fewer each year – Burgundy rarely is as pristine, or downright delicious, than with the extraordinary wines of Alexandrine Roy.

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.
