Domaine Dominique Gallois Gevrey Chambertin La Justice 2019
- Burgundy - Gevrey Chambertin
- Red Wine
Although the grand cru wines attract the most attention, those made under the village's standard Gevrey-Chambertin appellation are held in very high regard. Just like their big grand cru brothers, all Gevrey-Chambertin wines are made almost exclusively from Pinot Noir.
Widely regarded as being Burgundy's most full-bodied and structured, the village's wines have a particular intensity of color, aroma and flavor about them, not to mention impressive longevity. With a firm backbone, well-made examples can develop in the bottle for several decades. A Gevry Pinot Noir has a rustic nature and is not overly sophisticated.
These qualities, combined with the village's solid reputation and relatively large production volumes, have earned Gevrey-Chambertin a reputation as the "king" of Burgundy wines.
