Tasting notes : The Gevrey-Chambertin Les Crais are elegant with a fine nose of morello cherry. The mouth attacks on freshness and finesse, supported by coated tannins until the finish. An ideal Gevrey to be tasted fresh in 3 to 8 years.
About the winery : A family of winegrower from father to son for 10 generations. Going back to 1790 (French Revolution). The terrois of the Domaine are a real gift of generations. The estate really grew when Jean-Louis and Eliane, both from a family of winemakers, took the reins in 1968. They have provided a titanic job to make this area this that it is today, and have also invested a lot in promoting the Marsannay appellation. Since the 90's, they have become very aware of the importance of practicing a culture that is more respectful of the environment. Thus from year to year, the work in the vineyards has evolved a lot. No more pesticides to start and more plowing and interventions in the vineyards throughout the year. In 2013 they had their first CERTIFIE BIO vintage by ECOCERT.
