2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Humbert Frères

A serious and weighty wine with crunchy raspberry fruit, well integrated spicy oak, fresh acidity and fine-grained, ripe tannins. This is a domaine with a growing reputation, which we believe is improving with each passing vintage. Manou Humbert is producing stylish, serious wines which will age well.

2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Humbert Frères
Domaine Humbert Frères

Ten years ago, the Humbert brothers swapped roles with Manou moving into the winery and Frédéric into the vineyard, and they haven’t looked back since. A larger than life, rugby-playing winemaker, Manou draws out clear definition in his wines. There is noticeable clarity between the brothers’ many terroirs in Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, impressive precision indeed.
