This comes from Les Ruchottes du Bas, a corner of vineyard next to Mazis-Chambertin. Lying high on the hillside, Ruchottes gives less massive wine than some of the other Gevrey-Chambertin Grands Crus, but finesse and aromatics can be outstanding. This comes partly from vines which are nearly 60 years old, partly from a plot which was re-planted in 2000. The family initially vinified the grapes separately, making two different wines, until the 2012 harvest, when Marie-Andrée stated: “This is the right moment to bring the two elements together: the younger vines bring new life and vivacious energy to the blend.” Rich, purple-ruby in colour, this has complex, fresh aromas of real beauty. Palate is vibrant, dancing with fruitiness. This wine has elegance, harmony and lovely, soft length (for drinking 2023-2035+).
