100% Pinot Noir with all vines in Gevrey-Chambertin. Classic with lush, fresh red berry flavors. Unrefined and unfiltered, these are younger vines vinified for earlier enjoyment. Traditional, Old World style.

Importer Notes:

René Leclerc and his son François are a good example of the family character of Burgundy domaines. The domaine consists of 12 hectares in and around Gevrey- Chambertin, producing Gevrey-Chambertin Village, Clos Prieur, Lavaux St. Jacques 1er Cru, Champeau 1er Cru, Combe aux Moines 1er Cru and a small amount of Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru.

The domaine is known for its old vines – 50-80 years average age in the crus – and a lush, fruity style of wine. Only small amounts of new oak are used, a maximum of 20-25% for most wines, and 50% for the Grand Cru, so that the emphasis remains on the expression of terroir through old vines.
