2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St-Jacques, Humbert Frères

90 year old vines produce a simply magnificent wine. Long and silky, with notes of crushed stones, flowers and red fruits. This is pretty remarkable: a great wine from a great vineyard.

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.
