Description

The Gevrey-Chambertin 2011 is a legendary wine, whose color is deep, glowing. On the nose this wine has aromas of black and red fruits and also floral notes. On the palate, this wine is both fine and powerfull, with dense tannins. The Clos Saint-Jacques 1er Cru has the taste of its soils and this only characteristic is an asset.

Magnificent estate of Gevrey-Chambertin

 

The Domaine Sylvie Esmonin (about 8 hectares of vineyard in total), is brilliantly managed by its eponymous owner. Former agricultural engineer, Sylvie Esmonin was also a wine consultant in multiple Côte de Nuits estates, before she decided to work alongside her father Michel Esmonin, and took over the Gevrey-Chambertin family estate in 1998, giving it her name.

Work and expertise in the vineyard, winemaking using the entire grapes... Sylvie Esmonin strives to create generous wines, full of nobility. She produces several appellations (Bourgogne Blanc, Bourgogne Rouge, Côte de Nuits Village, Gevrey Chambertin, Volnay-Santenots, and the flagship: Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jacques), some in confidential quantities to the greatest joy of enlightened amateurs.

The Clos Saint-Jacques plot's name comes from the discovery of a statue of Saint-Jacques, and the presence of a chapel dedicated to him. The plot represents more than 2 hectares and is divided into vertical stripes belonging to five different owners, including the Domaine Sylvie Esmonin.
