Our Gevrey Chambertin « Les Murots » has a lovely ruby red robe with light raspberry reflections. The nose has aromas of ripe red and black fruit on a background of spicy and woody notes. Further years of ageing will bring forward animal, musc and fur notes. Full-flavoured and velvety, this wine is silky, robust, tannic and well-balanced. A beautiful and persistent finale where the primary nose is echoed.
One of the great appellations of the Cote de Nuits both in terms of size and of reputation, Gevrey Chambertin is
characterised by a wide variety of different terroirs. No white wines are found here, only pinot noir is cultivated. Our 3.5 acre plot is located at the bottom of the hillside slope at a spot known as Les Murots. The soils are clay-and-limestone with the latter dominating. On the surface, the high proportion of scree gravel carried by the dejection cone from the Lavaux combe provides drainage which favours ripening of the grapes by reverberation of heat and of the sun’s rays. This light soil surface gives Gevrey-Chambertin wines a palette of red fruit, mineral notes and a suppleness characteristic of this terroir.
|Taste this Gevrey Chambertin « Les Murots » with red meat dishes, small game and fine classic cheese. Perfect match for a coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, hare cooked on a spit, duck in wine sauce or veal liver with mushrooms. With dessert, try a cherry clafouti (French speciality rather like a thick pancake with cherries).
