Gevrey Chambertin ‘Clos Prieur’ Domaine Marc Roy 2017
Domaine Marc Roy, Gevrey Chambertin
Standing in the heart of Gevrey Chambertin, this estate has passed from father to son for generations, yet the winemaking is now carried out by Marc's only daughter Alexandrine. She’s had a huge impact on the domaine, having previously spent time in other classic Pinot growing regions, such as Oregon, and Central Otago N.Z. Although Alexandrine has no Grand or 1er Crus, her village wines are of a particularly high quality, coming from very old vines (70 year old for the Vieilles Vignes)
Made from 70 year old Pinot Noir vines, Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Domaine Marc Roy 2013 is made to be the most delicate and approachable of Alexandrine's wines. With a superb finesse and elegance, it has an intense perfume of fresh red cherries, cranberries and a touch of earth. The Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Domaine Marc Roy is perfectly balanced with a lovely lingering fruity finish.
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
