DOMAINE PIERRE GELIN

DOMAINE PIERRE GELINThe GELIN winegrowing is a family property of a dozen hectares on the communes of Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin. The property created in 1925 by Pierre Gelin is now exploited by Stéphen GELIN and his wife assisted by their Pierre-Emmanuel son who integrated the company in September 2000. Types of wines: Bourgogne Passetoutgrain, Bourgogne aligoté, Bourgogne red, Fixin 1ers crus Les Hervelets, Les Arvelets and the Clos Napoléon (Monopole), Gevrey Chambertin “Clos de Meixvelles” (Monopole), Gevrey Chambertin 1er cru Clos Prieur et Chambertin Clos de Bèze. The methods of culture are traditional, the limited outputs and the manual grape harvest. After a maturing out of barrels of 22/24 month old oak, the wines are bottled at the property.
One is obviously at the top with this Fixin premier cru Clos Napoleon 2009, 50 year old vines, manual grape harvest, matured 22 month out of barrels of oak, very full, of robe crimson, which associates structure and distinction, to the characteristic nose where are guessed the ripe fruits, the humus and the spices (grooves, pepper), all stops some, fleshy, of beautiful evolution. The 2008 are of a great complexity, with the characteristic nose prevailed by the cooked fruits and liquorice, of powerful structure, with these tannins quite present, of rich mouth (morello cherry, humus, spices). Superb 2007, an intense wine with the nose, which associates structure and distinction, with these notes of smoked quite specific, one of best tasted this year. Tasty 2006, garnet-red robe and reflections crimsons. Nose complexes where mix with the notes of soft spices (vanilla and grooves) and of stone-fruits, beautiful fresh attack stops some, tannins is unctuous, molten and delicately underlines the powerful and persistent kirsch aromas. Beautiful minerality continuing on vanilla finally. The 2005, are a great wine where intermingle with the notes of red small fruits with core quite ripe, of pepper and liquorice, of cordial and powerful mouth, a wine obviously still very young. Fixin 2009, scented, with the typical undergrowth and blackberry connotations, is of beautiful structure, a wine which fills up the mouth well. There are also this attractive and rare white Fixin, an elegant and suave wine, very traditional, of intense robe, rich with the nose as in mouth, all in aromatic nuances (lime, hazel nut).
