Lou Dumont Gevrey Chambertin 2020

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.


As a thin-skinned grape variety, Pinot Noir generally has a moderate to high acidity, a low level of phenolic compounds, low to moderate levels of soft tannins and is generally paler in color than most other red wines.


Red wines range from a pale pinkish red through to the darker tones which an interior designer might recognize as Burgundy. Color and body do not necessarily intensify as price and/or quality rises, and even the deepest examples tend to have an appealing translucence and minimal opacity in the wine's core. See below for rosé.


Wine novices can often find it hard to reconcile these aspects of "lightness" with the prices at which Pinot Noir wines are usually sold. Lovers of the grape focus on its aromatic, flavor and textural qualities.
