Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the most recognized appellations in Burgundy for good reason. At the commune level, these can be immensely satisfying Pinot Noir-based wines, substantial, dark-hued, infused with assertive fruit and heady aromatics. The distinction of Gevrey-Chambertin becomes unmistakable in the Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. There you find the muscularity and structure that sets this appellation apart from all others.
We are pleased to offer a range of wines from one of Gevrey-Chambertin’s most respected producers. Dominique Gallois took over the family vineyards from his father in 1989. The small domaine is around 10 acres, the bulk of which is centered in Gevrey-Chambertin. Cultivation and winemaking are aimed at producing wines that are pure and speak of their unique terroir. The Gallois cellars, constructed by Dominique’s great grandfather in 1901, are reputed to be some of the coldest in the region, which helps to create wines of great depth and longevity.
These are pre-arrival prices good until this Sunday. All of the wines will be available for pickup within the next couple of weeks.
