Gevrey-Chambertin

2015

6/750

This wine is a blend of equal parts from two parcels, Seuvrées and Charreux; the Lécheneauts farm a total of .11 hectares between these two vineyards. The village appellation is predominantly brown calcareous and brown limestone soils; these sites also have marl covered with scree and red silt, which brings an elegance and finesse to the wine, while the limestone, littered with fossils, gives body and firmness. The vines are 70 years old on average.

2,600 bottles produced annually.

"Bright dark red. Nose dominated by soil tones and musky reduction, with dark fruits and violet in the background today. Then broad, plush and sweet in the mouth; more pliant and less primary than the village wines from Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny, but still in a juicy style. Most impressive today on the back end, where it spreads out horizontally to coat the palate and linger. "
