Gevrey-Chambertin "En Créot"

First vintage in 2020.

Presentation

Location
These vines were planted between 1950 and 1958 across 1.4 hectares to the northwest of the appellation in Brochon, in the continuation of the Gevrey valley.
Terroir
The vines grow on shallow brown clay-limestone soil on scree-covered marl from the Gevrey valley, and red silt from the plateau. “Créot” means “chalk”, which underscores the soil type here.
Vinification
Harvesting is manual and the grapes are fully destalked because this limestone terroir alone is enough to bring mineral freshness to the wine.
Varietal
Pinot Noir : 100%

Advice

Tasting
The chalky soil gives this wine a beautiful freshness. Its unique location brings a purity worthy of certain grand crus from this appellation.
