2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Poissenots, Humbert Frères

The highest and coolest Premier Cru in Gevrey, the topsoil here is almost non-existent. Very floral with notes of violet and pepper, there is a rocky, angular feel with grippy tannins. Needs some time in the bottle.

2014 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.
