Henri de Villamont, Gevrey-Chambertin

£63.84
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2017 vintage. Harvest is totally destemed. This wine will be bottling after have been past between 13 and 14 months in barrels. A ruby colour with note of wood, then it reveals fruity notes like blackberry at the nose. This is an elegant wine. Pairings: Quail and game.
