Domaine Marchand-Grillot Gevrey-Chambertin Champerrier Vigne Centenaire 2015 (4212)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Gevrey-Chambertin
Pinot Noir

 

Planted in 1903, of all the "vielles vignes" in Gevrey-Chambertin, Champerrier is certainly the "elder statesman". Seven generations have tended these vines and today Marchand-Grillot's low-cropping 0.72 hectare plot produces just 3 to 4 barrels annually of one of the commune's most absorbing wines.
Jacques Marchand wished to rediscover the taste of wine of yesteryear. After a severe harvest selection in the vineyard and on the sorting table, the vat is filled with whole bunches, and the fermentation and cellar ageing process takes place without the use of sulphur dioxide.

On the same contour as Chambertin, Clos de Beze and Mazis-Chambertin. 100% whole bunch. This cuvee is made from the domaine's oldest vines - planted in 1903 - hence the name Vigne Centenaire. This is something different. The palate is special - mouth-filling, textured, vibrant. There's blackberries, liquorice, flowers, a creamy character from the old vines: the finish goes on and on. The character really old vines lends to wines is not to be underestimated. This is a lovely cuvee with more character and complexity than many Premier Crus.
