Domaine Dominique Gallois Gevrey Chambertin La Combe Aux Moines 2015
This is a stunning Gevrey Chambertin from a small premier cru plot named La Combe aux Moines, which was planted in 1954 (60+ year old vines). Dominique Gallois farms his plot himself and believes that 'nature is the boss.' The result is a wine which is dense and rich but wonderfully balanced with an incredible texture, both sappy and silky. Black fruits and stones abound in this delicious offering. This 12-acre estate has been in the Gallois family since 1901. His Premier Cru wines generally receive 30% new oak for 14 months and since his cellar is so deep, the wines age quite slowly and are known for their finesse, elegance and freshness. He also produces the wines with vegan methods (so no egg whites for fining).
