2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St-Jacques, Humbert Frères

Masses of blackcurrant, dark berries and plumon the nose, very fruit forward entwined with wonderful aromatic notes of thyme. Big and rich but with elegance and refinement. A perfect balance of acidity, silky tannins and intense fruit flavour that leads into a huge textured finish.

2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St-Jacques, 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.
