    Winemaker Notes

    The Griottes-Chambertin is a serious wine that requires time in the glass. Impenetrable at first, it gradually reveals a complex nose of black and red cherries, chocolate, game and exotic spices. The palate is rich and full, with good structure, real concentration and a lingering finish.

    Rene Leclerc, France
    René Leclerc and his brother Philippe are two of Gevrey's most conspicuous 'characters', and reviewers often spend more time discussing their looks and habits than their wines. The fact of the matter is that René is a true Burgundy vigneron in the finest sense of the word, a man who spends more time outdoors than in the laboratory or in the cooperage. He knows his vines intimately, and devotes his energies to producing the best and most authentic fruit from a series of well-located vineyards. Vinifications are traditional, because fancy winemaking techniques are not needed when one has top quality grapes.

    The result is a range of rich, terroir-driven reds, unmistakably Gevrey-Chambertin in both flavour and style. Each vineyard bottling displays the subtle nuances that differentiate one 'cru' from another. New oak is used more than before, but never so much as to mask these complexities. Both Robert Parker and Pierre-Antoine Rovani (Parker's nominated Burgundy expert) have lavished praise on this domaine, which is now rated among the very best in the important village of Gevrey-Chambertin.

    Red Wine

    Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

    Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

    Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
