2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St-Jacques, Humbert Frères

For me the jewel in the crown at Humbert and easily of Grand Cru quality. 65 year old vines which produce tiny berries of great concentration. Plenty of ripe tannin and classic blue and black Gevrey fruit with a creamy texture and cool feel from the air drawn down the Combe de Lavaut.

2014 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.
