2009 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenots, Humbert Frères

Manou Humbert sees this wine as the flagship wine of the estate, and it is easy to see why: muscular and full, with a big structure thanks to the higher proportion of clay in the vineyard, and a Black Forest Gâteau-richness on the palate, this wine needs time, but will reward the patient as it is of outstanding quality.

2009 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenots, 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.
