Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur

TERROIR
The village of Gevrey-Chambertin is located in the heart of the
Côte de Nuits, between Dijon and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Vineyards
have a perfect exposure to the east, thus giving it the potential to
produce excellent wines. The complex soils are composed of
limestone, clay and marl, silt and scree. The 1er Cru Clos Prieur
is located in the heart of the appellation, just opposite of the
Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin.
GRAPE VARIETY
100% Pinot Noir
WINEMAKING
Manual harvest with grape sorting before the vinification and
full destemming.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks and maturation in oak
barrels for 12 to 18 months, including 30% of new barrels.
WINE TASTING
Deep ruby red in colour
In the nose, aromas of small fruits (strawberry, blackberry) and
flowers (violet). It will develop more complex aromas of leather,
truffle and game when matured for a few years.
In the mouth, it is a full-bodied and powerful wine, with a good
structure, voluptuous tannins and a very long finish.
FOOD PAIRING
Goes well with all red meats, especially strong flavored meats like
game, but can also be served with fishes in red sauce. Also pairs
well with strong cheeses like Citeaux, Epoisses or l’Ami du
Chambertin.
SERVICE TEMPERATURE AND AGEING
Wine to be served at 16°C / 60° F.
While already very enjoyable in its youth, the Gevrey-
Chambertin is a wine to keep for 10 to 20 years in a good cellar.
