Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, France
Appellation:
1er cru Les Champeaux
Alcohol Level:
13%
Description:
The expressive and ripe nose also evidences a hint of anise on the equally airy and slightly cooler aromas of red and dark currant laced with plenty of sauvage character. The mouthfeel is interesting in that there is an almost tenderness to the dense mid-palate of the middle weight plus flavors that flash a bracing minerality on the beautifully complex and persistent finale. This is at once serious and muscular and should age accordingly.
Winery:
Jean Michel Guillon
Born in Paris, Jean-Michel Guillon arrived at Gevrey-Chambertin in 1980 when he retired from aeronautics. With a special love for the use of new oak barrels, he jokingly refers to himself as “the biggest oak barrel consumer” in Gevrey Chambertin. He has built up a Domaine of reputation from scratch with the help of his good friends and mentors like Rene Galland and the well-renowned Henri Jayer. Their wine range includes many prestigious appellations like Mazis-Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey Saint-Denis, etc. As Allen Meadows commented: “Jean-Michel Guillon’s wines retain a clear sense of style and grace and remain identifiably Pinot Noir”. Jean-Michel Guillon was also elected as Winemaker of the Year 2020 by the famous French wine guide book
