2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Humbert Frères

A Lay & Wheeler favourite for years, from 90 year old vines, this is textured with spice and real energy. There’s very fine tannins, and a long, saline finish.

2017 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.
