    THE STORY: Alexandrine Roy is the 4th generation of the Roy family to farm her holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin and Marsannay. This is a tiny domaine of just four hectares that is meticulously cared for as if it was a personal garden. Alexandrine is a true farmer, consistently ploughing the soils of her old- vine vineyards (many of which are more than 100 years old) to allow the roots to dig deep into the shallow limestone. The resulting wines from these delicately cared for plots show a lovely purity and elegance that have garnered the domaine praise from around the world. Through minimal intervention and extraction, Alexandrine allows her old vines to express themselves with immense depth of flavor and clarity. For the uninitiated – and there seem to be fewer and fewer each year – Burgundy rarely is as pristine, or downright delicious, than with the extraordinary wines of Alexandrine Roy.
