2011 Maison L'Orée Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes

Gevrey-Chambertin is a world famous, wine-producing region eight miles south of Dijon in the Côte de Nuits. Many consider Gevrey-Chambertin the true northern limit of the Côte d’Or. Boasting nine Grand Crus, it is the largest commune in the Côte de Nuits. Archaeological digs have uncovered Gallo-Roman vines dating back to the 1st Century BC. Originally called just Gevrey, the parish council appended the name of the most prestigious local vineyard, Le Chambertin in 1847. The village thrives on the production and sale of wine. The soils are composed of clay and limestone with a good proportion of marls, rich in shellfish fossils.

A deep wine, rich in color, with black fruits and an untamed mineral note. The wine is very open and very approachable with well-integrated tannins and just a subtle touch of oak. Easy-drinking and enjoyable now.
