The grapes come from the vineyards from the village of Gevrey-Chambertin in the north of the Côte de Nuits.

Soil : clay and limestone. Medium slope.

100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed. (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks.

The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (10% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. Gevrey Chambertin "Vieilles Vignes” is bottled when the moon is down and when the day is fruit according to the lunar calendar

The Gevrey Chambertin wine has high colour, is intensively aromatic, evoking blackberries and other small red

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine & Spirits - "“This Gevrey has a casual beauty that’s hard to ignore. Eric Germain makes it from a parcel of 60-year-old vines, taking the fruit through a slow, spontaneous fermentation and aging the wine in barrels (10 percent new ). It captures the scent of freshly turned earth and the concentrated flavor of tiny wild strawberries while feeling light and airy in its grape-skin tannins. Complex and comforting.”"
