Francois Leclerc Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru - Les Corbeaux 2012
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Appellation: Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
Variety: Pinor Noir
René is slowly passing the reins of the domaine to his son, Francois, whom has also trained in Oregon and Sonoma where he made wines for Cristom & Chalk Hill Winery.
He works closely with his Dad because he wants to continue the successful winemaking style that Rene has perfected. Francois purchased his own vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin so he could get started with his labels and he uses the same traditional techniques, including for his Bourgogne Pinot Noir.
East side neighbor of the Mazis-Chambertin, Les Corbeaux, translated “the Ravens”, has a Grand Cru profile at a Premier Cru price!
The beautiful olfactory intensity signs its personality. More in length than in power, it is very supple. Lot’s of consistency in this wine, with exuberant fruit aromas dominated by cassis, strawberry and raspberry, hints of mushrooms, wet forest soil, slightly spiced with a very silky body.
Les Corbeaux will reveal how grandly aromatic, complex and noble it is when mature.
