Domaine Roux Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Vieilles Vignes’

Old vine Pinot Noir digs its roots into a diverse range of soils from limestone to marl to red silt that add richness to the wine. The nose is comprised of notes of strawberry, violet, and rose, with more complex fragrances of licorice and leather developing with age. A well-structured wine with velvety tannins that will rewards extensive cellaring. Fermentation on the lees in French oak barrels is followed by an extensive aging period of 15-18 months.

A juicy style, with cherry, raspberry, tea, and spice flavors and a mineral element lurking underneath. This is solid, turning more compact on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2016.

A powerful wine – this has plenty of weight and tannic structure. It also has a lively red-fruit character that comes through with acidity. There is a muscular feel to this wine, one that promises ageability.
