Gevrey Chambertin La Justice
BACKGROUND

Domaine Antonin Guyon is one of the most prestigious estates in the Côte d’Or, as well as one of the largest family-owned wineries in the region. It was started in the 1960s by Antonin Guyon with parcels of land in Gevrey and Meursault. Today, the massive 47 hectare property is controlled and operated today by Antonin’s sons, Dominique and Michel and produces wines of impeccable quality from 15 different appellations, which includes many renowned villages from the region. An exceptional range of Premier and Grands Crus.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Gevrey-Chambertin is a large wine-producing village in the northern Côte de Nuits. The soils here are primarily clay and limestone based, with significant mineral deposits. La Justice vineyard site sits just below the village of Gevrey and is considered the best lieu-dit in Gevrey- Chambertin. Grapes are hand-harvested then carried in small wooden boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes places for 20 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature with treading. The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, one-third of which are new barrels.

TASTING NOTES

Ruby red in color with aromas of morello cherries. Very round and wellbalanced, with subtle woody tannins and a silky texture. This racy wine can be kept for 10 years. Delicious with lamb, stew, chicken in wine-based sauces and cheeses.
