With a beautiful ruby red colour with raspberry reflections, the Gevrey Chambertin « les Corvees » develops aromas of red fruit, delicate floral notes like peony, and a light woody-vanilla hint. Nice body, the mouth is cherry fruit with fine tannins which give a balanced structure and a beautifully persistent finale.
One of the great appellations of the Cote de Nuits both in terms of size and of reputation, Gevrey Chambertin is
characterised by a wide variety of different terroirs. « Les Corvees » vineyard is located at the entrance of the village and is planted on deep brown limestone soil on marly limestone bedrock which gives depth and density to the wines produced from this precise area.
|Taste this Gevrey Chambertin ”Les Corvees” with red meat dishes, small game and fine classic cheese. Perfect match for a coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, hare cooked on a spit, duck in wine sauce or veal liver with mushrooms. With dessert, try a cherry clafouti (French speciality rather like a thick pancake with cherries).
