Domaine Dujac Gevrey Chambertin Les Combottes 1er Cru 2016 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

This wine offers a complex nose of red and black fruits, spices, and earthy undertones. The palate is rich and full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, satisfying finish. This wine will continue to develop and improve with age.

Vineyard notes

- Les Combottes, a lieu-dit south of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, lies halfway up the hill, just below the steep incline of Les Monts Luisants, in a steeply sloping area (5–6%). Ranging in altitude from 271 to 282 meters, this lieu-dit faces due east. The soil changes from east to west. In the eastern part of the plot, the reddish-brown soil is 40 to 50 cm thick, containing angular-to-rounded limestone fragments. In the western part of the lieu-dit, the soil is rich in fine angular limestone gravel. The substratum underlying Les Combottes is ocher-colored crinoidal limestone (calcaire à Entroques), rich in debris from marine organisms. To the west, this layer is overlain by bedded limestone scree (grèzes litées), covering the upper part of the slope. This Comblanchien limestone scree is composed of fine angular gravel.
