Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Pure cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors are set against a bevy of brawny tannins in this well-toned red, which is intense and shows excellent length, if a bit dry on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030. 85 cases imported. — BS

Frederic Esmonin, France
Before 1988, Winemaker André Esmonin sold all his grapes to negociants such as Leroy and Louis Jadot. It was his Andre’s son, Frédéric who pushed the family to domaine bottle their wines. The farming at this address is lutte raisonée, meaning use of chemical treatments is done only if the vineyards are threatened, and not as a matter of course. They regularly plow their soils, and herbicides are have not been used for almost 15 years. When choosing to pick, they tend to error on the early side to avoid over-ripeness. The grapes are de-stemmed, and given a short, cold-maceration to get good color set, before letting the must rise to fermentation temperature. The use of oak is well-judged, and if anything, on the spare side, rarely showing its presence in the finished wine. They bottle early, delivering a dark, fresh fruit character, instead of relying on weight or concentration for palate impression. The end result are wines that gain an excellent, savory, meaty, Gevrey-character as they gain time in a bottle. Esmonin wines are routinely noted for their admirably long life-span.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

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.
