Gevrey-Chambertin Les Jeunes Rois
Les Jeunes Rois
is a climat
in the village of Brochon, at the northern limit of the appellation. This area is renowned for producing Gevrey-Chambertin wines of great character.
There, we have 1 hectare / ≈ 2.5 acres of 45-year-old vines, on a soil composed of sandy marl and compact Comblanchien limestone.
The Gevrey-Chambertin Les Jeunes Rois
is an archetype of the appellation: the palate is structured by beautiful, solid yet fresh tannins, with aromas of black fruits and liquorice, and a long finish marked by a firm mineral texture.
Here, there is true depth, with no rusticity, in a wine made for keeping, which can be paired with dishes of character.
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 can be paired with a coq au vin
, or any red meat. Les Jeunes Rois
is an ideal wine with wild boar, or duck breast in its juices flavoured with juniper berries, or a slow-cooked leg of baby lamb, simmered for seven hours.
