From beloved producer Domaine Pierre Gelin, and renowned Cotes de Nuit appelation, only 100 cases of this Domaine Pierre Gelin Clos de Meixvelle Gevrey Chambertin were imported to the US, and we got some. How is your Burgundy assortment looking?

Wine Spectator: "This red is marked by succulent acidity and fine balance. Bright cherry, strawberry, currant, graphite and subtle floral aromas and flavors are detailed and intense. Packs a lot of flavor and complexity into a slim frame, with integrated oak. Best from 2021 through 2035. 483 cases made, 100 cases imported." Apr 2019

Winery:  "Clos de Meixvelle shows classic Gevrey-Chambertin typicity with black fruit, structure, and assertiveness. Aromas and flavors of black berries, black cherries, herbs, and flowers are supported by medium weight and sturdy tannins.

Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami."

Domaine Pierre Gelin: "Domaine Pierre Gelin is the leading wine producer in the small village of Fixin (pronounced “Fees-an”). The family domaine was founded in 1925 by Pierre Gelin and is today in the hands of Pierre’s grandson, Pierre-Emmanuel. Pierre-Emmanuel farms organically and works to minimize the impact on the environment in both vineyard and cellar. The family owns 32 acres in total including parcels in five Fixin premier crus and the monopole of Clos Napoléon. In 1961 Pierre also purchased vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin including the monopole Clos de Meixvelle, Clos Prieur 1er cru, and the Grand Cru Clos de Bèze.

Clos de Meixvelle is a monopole of Domaine Pierre Gelin. The vineyard was purchased by Pierre Gelin in 1952 who began farming it in the mid-1940s. The vines were planted by Pierre and are over 70 years old. The vineyard sits near the heart of the village on a shallow slope of alluvial soil over a base of limestone. Grapes are completely de-stemmed and only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The wine was matured for 20-24 months in used Burgundian pièce."
