Domaine Dujac DUJAC GEVREY CHAMBERTIN AUX COMBOTTES 2013
|Region||France, Burgundy, Gevrey-Chambertin|
Dujac wines are more than just varietally correct - they are intimate travelogues of some of the most celebrated sites on earth. This vineyard is situated just below 919 feet of elevation and adjacent to the Grand Cru vineyards of Latricières and Mazoyères ou Charmes. The vineyard's somewhat heavier soil retains moisture compared to the neighboring Grand Crus, but it enjoys longer sun exposure. Only Pinot Noir is planted. Combottes is the diminutive of Combe, from 12th century Gallic Cumba "hollow, valley." This parcel lies at the end of the Grisard Combe. The vines have been organically farmed since 2001. This wine brings forth a spicy property in addition to dynamic fruit. Made from Pinot Noir grapes; grown on soils of clay & limestone. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, using naturally occurring yeast. Aged in French barrique, 60-85% new. Aged for 18 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
