Domaine Dujac Gevrey Chambertin Les Combottes 1er Cru 2017 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

With a beautiful ruby color, the 2017 vintage displays aromas of red fruits, earth, and a hint of spice. The palate is medium-bodied, with a good balance of fruit, acidity, and tannins, leading to a persistent and elegant finish.

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.
