Winemaker Notes

Succulent red and blue fruits dance against a backdrop of pressed herbs, black pepper, wildflower petals, crushed river rocks, earth and a kiss of tobacco in this appealing, stylish ’16 Gevrey Chambertin Combe Aux Moines. This wine’s minerality is front and center, balanced by chewy tannins, a sweet inner perfume and brooding fruits that linger on the sustained finish. “Combe aux Moines” translates to “the monk’s comb,” but its name refers to the spot for assignations between local monks and local village women, and the wine is as beguiling as its name suggests. This wine derives from vines that average 60 years of age grown in soils rich in limestone and clay, and it ages in French oak, about one-quarter new. Just 350 cases produced.
