Tasting Notes: A bright, light ruby robe. The taster is met with a very open nose, unleashing a lot of energy; the nose – both sunny and fresh – is focused and comprises mixed notes of spices, orange peel, herbes de Provence and ripe, red, even jammy, fruits. This sensation of crushed leaves, showing a fresh, menthol flavour as well as a discreet acidity, is picked up on the palate. Typical liquorice aromas revolve around sweet tannins – a sign of the wonderfully ripe grapes. The tasting ends on a tart and tonic note of cherry stone.
About the Winery: The Gelin family has been managing this esteemed 13-hectare estate since 1925. Under the stewardship of Pierre-Emmanuel Gelin since 2000, the vineyards have transitioned to organic farming. With vineyards in Fixin and Gevrey Chambertin, including the monopoles of Fixin 1er Cru Clos Napoléon and Gevrey Chambertin Clos Meixvelle, the wines showcase generous flavours and a rustic profile with strong tannins. The estate follows manual harvest practices, employs maceration and fermentation techniques, and ages the wines in oak barrels for 20 to 24 months before release.
