Description

Henri Richard Gevrey Chambertin Aux Corvees 2017

Henri Richard Gevrey Chambertin Aux Corvees comes from a traditional, family-run, organic estate. The wine opens with notes of raspberries, cranberries and has a slightly barnyard nose. Well balanced, vibrant acidity, and elegant. 

100% Pinot Noir. From 22, 40 and 50 years old vines growing in a Clos of old Pinot Noir behind the houses of the old Gevrey-Chambertin village. The vines grow in a temperate oceanic climate with continental tendencies, are exposed due east, at an altitude between 250–350 metres, on a clay-limestone subsoil. Since 2018, the estate's wines have been certified biodynamic by Démeter. 

Manual harvest of the grapes and then transport to reception for sorting and gravity vatting. Whole bunch indigenous alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine ages in oak barrels for 18 months. Work by natural racking, clarification and stabilisation without filtration.
