2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Humbert Frères

A generous nose of summer fruit compote is supported by a subtle frame of new oak. Mouth watering acidity and touch of oyster shell mineral salinity refreshes the parts other wines fail to reach.

2011 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.
