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, “which brings new life and vivacious energy to the blend,” says Marie-Andrée. Medium deep, ruby purple in colour, this shows delicate, fine aromas. Palate shows superb fruit concentration, gentle tannins, welcome freshness on the finish, with lovely length (for drinking 2024-2035+).
