2009 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Craipillot, Humbert Frères

This wine comes from very old vines: 80 years on average! It is this estate's most delicate and feminine premier cru. The nose is beguiling, with a great complexity: red fruits, but also some lavender and a hint of truffly savoury character. This flavour profile follows onto the palate and the texture is simply great: fresh acidity and fine but firm tannins.

2009 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Craipillot, 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.
