Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice
is a climat
at the mouth of the Combe Lavaux. We have 3 plots (2 hectares in all / ≈ 5 acres), with 50-year-old vines. The soil is composed of stones of different sizes mixed with clay.
The Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice has all the aromatic and tannic intensity characteristic of this appellation. On this stony ground, grapes acquire aromas of heated rock, Madagascar pepper, Espelette chilli pepper, and ripe black fruits. On the palate, you will find concentrated but fine rounded tannins. A fresh herb note (Chartreuse) reveals itself in a finish with lingering salinity, complementing the elegance of this fine example of a Gevrey-Chambertin wine.
This wine can be kept for 5 to 10 years, but its texture and quality mean that it can also be drunk young.
Depending on the vintage, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation, and ageing lasts about 12 months in barrels (with 20% of new barrels) and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
It will go perfectly with roast duck, grilled red meat, sea bream with sun-dried tomatoes and Espelette chilli pepper, roasted Black Bigorre pork, or Jabugo ham.
