About the Wine
The key to discovering the extraordinary diversity of Gevrey-Chambertin is found in the cellars of Domaine Livera. These are wines that are both striking in their fidelity to the Livera family’s exemplary terroir and memorable for their uncanny ability to translate Gevrey’s earthy seduction to the glass. Today, fourth-generation winemaker, Damien Livera is at the helm. Crafting some of the region’s more terroir-true, supple, and elegant wines. Damien has quickly established himself as one of the top young winemakers in the Côte de Nuits.
What sets the Liveras apart is their attention to Gevrey’s collection of unique terroirs. To a one, the family’s villages-level vineyards are natural extensions of premier cru plots; and as such these wines overachieve every vintage, with fine tannins and rich textures, not to mention an uncanny ability to age far above their station.
‘En Champs’ is found just underneath premier cru ‘Champeaux,’ on the border with the village of Brochon. Here the soil is thin, and the “mother rock” of Burgundy (pure limestone) touches the surface.
Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. Aromas of black and white pepper, red berries and licorice. Refined and mineral, with medium tannins. Enjoy with Roast lamb, beef in sauce, and truffled dishes
