Domaine Dominique Gallois Gevrey Chambertin La Combe Aux Moines 2015


SKU 00774


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).

BurghoundThis is at once riper yet even more complex with its array of openly sauvage and earthy aromas of forest floor, dark berries and smoke that are trimmed in a background application of wood. As is almost always the case the middle weight plus flavors are bigger, richer and more powerful with ample amount of dry extract buffering the firm tannic spine on the tightly wound finale. Excellent. 91-93
