    Cuvée presentation

    Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy crafts a Gevrey-Chambertin by the rule book. This estate has 10 hectares of vines with a majority of grands and premiers crus, where noble varietals are cultivated following sustainable methods. The Pinot noir making up this cuvée benefits from chalk-rich pebbly soil in a vineyard that faces east.
    On the domain, harvests are carried out by hand before a traditional vinification. The wine is matured in oak casks with only a small amount of new wood, thus avoiding any heavy oakiness conferred to the fragile grape.
    We recommend ageing this wine for ten, even fifteen, years in order to appreciate the distinction and density it develops. Its evolved bouquet carries flavourful notes typical of Pinot noir (red and black fruit, violet, white pepper) and of its age (gentle spices, musk, leather). Its dense texture is structured by well-integrated tannins.
    We recommend opening this wine an hour before serving with a characterful meat dish or squash soup.
