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 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. Enjoy this wonderful Fixin Premier Cru Clos Napoléon 2016, vines of 50 years old, manual harvest, aged 22 months in oak barrels, beautiful intense red hue, nose marked by aromas of blackberry and liquorice, a large wine, very persistent on the palate like this Chambertin Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2016, marked by its terroir, with a persistent nose dominated by notes of griotte, musk and spices, with dense tannins, a wine of beautiful expression that must be allowed to evolve in order to take advantage of its real potential. We continue with the Gevrey-Chambertin Clos de Meixvelle 2016, which is in line, with the powerful nose where mix blackberry and blackcurrant, ample and solid, silky and rich mouth. Tasty Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Clos Prieur 2016, shiny in colour, with notes of raspberry and cherry, well balanced, combining structure and velvety on the palate, ample and oily, custodial, of course. We continue with the Fixin premier Cru Les Hervelets 2016, of beautiful intense red hue, with nose marked by aromas of blackberry, ample, very persistent, very fine, with soft and powerful tannins at the same time, good guard. The Fixin La Cocarde 2016, with an intense bouquet of blackcurrant and humus, a solid wine, with soft tannins, with a warm mouth.
