Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers"

50 years old

The grapes come from the vineyards from the village of Gevrey-Chambertin in the north of the Côte de Nuits, not far from the famous vineyard "Lavaux-Saint Jacques” (Lavaux valley) Soil : clay and limestone. Medium slope, east exposure. 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (20% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 16 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers” is bottled during the "root” day.

The Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is intensively aromatic, evoking red and black fruits. Very soft tannins.

red meats, game or various cheeses.
