Winemaker Notes

Fresh and fruity, this Pinot Noir is round and generous with mineral undercurrents and wild, musky aromas. Notes of salt, rosewood and wild flowers are abundant on the substantial, fleshy palate.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Forthcoming aromas of sandalwood, flowers and sweet spices give way to wild cherry and underbrush notes in this sleek red. Balanced overall, just needs time for the tannins to be absorbed and the flavors to deepen. Best from 2020 through 2033.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This wine from a densely planted southeast-facing vineyard is still firmly structured with a dry core of tannins. Its black cherry and plum fruit flavors are still developing yet show considerable potential. With its richness, it will age well.
BH 91
This too is cool, airy and restrained with its layered mix of red currant, cherry, forest floor and sauvage hints. There is plenty of earth character adding depth to the ultra-precise and intense middle weight flavors that exude an attractive bead of minerality onto the clean, saline and impressively persistent finish. This beautiful Gevrey villages should reward up to a decade of bottle age if desired.

Philippe Pacalet is one of the leading natural winemakers in Burgundy, producing wines with minimal intervention to ensure that the terroir is as transparent as possible in his selections. He crafts wines from some of the most renowned appellations of Côte d’Or where he strategically chose vineyard parcels that parallel with the principles of his work. He does not possess his own vineyards but is cautious to contract with growers who work organically and sustainably, following his own rigid set of beliefs and personally supervises farming throughout each phase. Harvest is performed manually by his team. Being that terroir is of utmost importance to him, Philippe removes anything from the vinification process that can obscure the purity of the land, allowing each wine’s specific characteristics to shine through. His overall philosophy is "Authenticity, Non-Interventionism and Cultural Experience." All of his care and attention to detail results in unrivaled top quality wines of stunning clarity.

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
