Located in the historic village of Gevrey-Chambertin, Domaine Gallois is run by the ever humble and quality-driven Dominique Gallois. His great-grandfather built the family's wine cellar and home in 1901 among the family's vines in Gevrey. Today, this 12 acre estate has holdings in Bourgogne, village Gevrey, premier cru Gevrey and grand cru Charmes-Chambertin. Dominique believes that 'nature is boss' and he is known to have one of the coldest, oldest cellars in the region for long, slow fermentations and great aging potential for his wines. He also produces the wines with vegan methods (so no egg whites for fining). We tasted and loved this Gevrey, the quality is simply stunning. Ultra smooth and caressing, with red fruits abounding, this is Pinot Noir as it should be. A great wine to introduce the American Pinot Noir drinker.

BurghoundA more deeply pitched nose offers up notes of dark pinot fruit along with plenty of earth and sauvage characters. Here too the middle weight flavors possess both good richness and volume, all wrapped in a lightly mineral-inflected, saline and balanced finish that is a bit less rustic than usual. This too is well worth considering. 89-91
