Domaine PIERRE GELIN Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos Prieur" 2019
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: A bright garnet robe of good intensity. The nose is rich, sunny and ‘sweet’, with very good aromatic complexity. Indeed, there are ripe fruits, spices, and flowers in this very delicate bouquet. And this is enhanced by noble vegetal notes – from about a third whole bunches being included during vinification. The attack on the palate is juicy, evoking the flesh of a cherry as you bite into it. Then, a wine full of tension is revealed, built on racy tannins and liquorice, accompanied by a discreet minerality. With finesse and elegance as weapons of seduction, the pleasure is immediate! In terms of aromas, stewed fruits dominate; they are later taken over by notes of orange peel, giving a nice bitterness on the finish. Overall, an incredible length of green pepper arouses pure emotion!
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.
