Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Murots"
Gevrey-Chambertin is a large town located at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits. It boasts one of the largest surface areas under vine with no fewer than 330 hectares under production. The vines are planted at altitudes of between 240 and 280 metres. The soil is limestone-based with a high proportion of clay marlstones from the scree of the Combe de Lavaux, giving power and roundness to the wines. "Les Murots" is located on the lower slope of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, on a soil composed of very poor scree gravel. The yields are naturally very low (30-35hL / ha) and the berries are very concentrated each year.

2018 - abundance and excellence! After a winter that was almost too mild, the vintage was notable for two contrasting periods. Spring was sunny and totally devoid of frost, despite some localized episodes of hail, which had major impact on certain plots on the Côte de Nuits, which were hit in June. Then the summer was dry and hot, blocking the ripening process in places. Picking began early, with exceptionally abundant fruit in tip-top condition, offering the potential for some very fine wines. Ageing potential: 10 years and more.
