About the Wine

The Domaine can trace its roots back to the mid 1800’s where Alexis Seguin was a winemaker in Gevrey Chambertin as well as an expert in grafting vines. The phylloxera crisis allowed him to showcase his talents and was one of the first and certainly a pioneer in Burgundy grafting the vines to American rootstock to fight the disease. Numerous awards for grafting vines were attributed to Alexis in the late 1800’s. Today this small family Domaine owns 6.5 hectares, 4.5 are in Gevrey and Gevrey 1er Cru vineyards. The remaining sites are spread between Chambolle, Fixin, and Marsannay. The wines made here show breed and class. There is a reason for such a high concentration of Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards in and around the borders of Gevrey. The grapes go through a few days of cold maceration and fermented with natural yeast. The use of new oak is slight to preserve the authenticity of the individual parcel’s terroir.

"This is a thrilling year for Pinot Noir, delivering wines bursting with head-turning perfume and fresh, succulent fruit. Supple and enveloping, they are simultaneously serious and immensely charming, prompting Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier—who crafted some of 2019’s most compelling wines—to remark that he had never before encountered 'a vintage that tasted so good, so young.'" ~Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Elevagé: 100% Barrel fermented (1-3 years old).

Tasting Notes: Wonderful dark garnet color; candied ripe strawberry nose with savory dried herbs, violets, grilled meat, and straw aromas; a substantial wine on the palate, very textured with juicy ripe red fruits leaning towards fresh plum and cherry; lots of savory forest floor but the plummy fruit is the focus and deliciously so; soil components are present and add complexity; mild tension of calcaire freshness moving to the finish. Extremely enjoyable now.
