Gevrey-Chambertin "La Justice"


Côte de Nuits


AOC Village

Grape variety

Pinot noir

A great appellation in the Côte de Nuits, both for its size and its renown, Gevrey-Chambertin stands out for the impressive diversity of its terroirs. White wine is not produced here, only Pinot Noir grapes are grown.
Benefitting from east-southeastern exposure, "La Justice" is an extremely old Climat that lies along the median - therefore the best axis - of the cone that is composed of geological matter that descended from the combe over several millennia.
The name "Justice" comes from the fact that these plots once belonged to the Lord of Gevrey, the abbot of Cluny. He held absolute power over this portion of the land that had been attributed to him, and here, "justice" means "juridiction" from the Latin jurisdictio (the right to exercise justice and the resulting action).


Deep nose combining scents of very red and black fruit (cherry, blueberry...) with hints of oak and spices that will evolve over time toward more animal notes (musk, fur). Delectable and velvety on the palate, this wine also boasts delicate structure, which contributes to its balance. The fruit found on the first nose is echoed on the lengthy finish.

Taste this wine with roasted or stewed meats (beef, lamb, game), or with medium to mature cheeses.
