Domaine Rene Leclerc Champeaux, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, France 2016

Regular price $ 126.14

Peppery spices, saline minerals, and touches of dried violet petals, citrus zest and earth frame the succulent red and blue fruits in this brooding ’16 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux. Fine-grained, chewy tannins find their match in electric acidity, while the wine’s sweet fruit is complemented by a solid core of elegant minerality. Deriving from the estate’s Les Champeaux parcel with shallow, very stony soils, grapes ferment with natural yeasts in stainless steel, and the wine ages for about a year in French oak, about one-quarter used.
