About the Wine
The Domaine can trace its roots back to the mid-1800s when 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 1800s.
Today this small family Domaine owns 16 acres, 9 of which 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 are fermented with natural yeast. The use of new oak is slight to preserve the authenticity of the individual parcel’s terroir.
2020 La Justice hails fromGevrey-Chambertin, a Climat considered by Robert Parker as "one of the best in the whole commune in village appellation." This wine comes from a vineyard that is located in the middle axis of the Combe de Lavaux. In a spectacular terroir with an alluvial cone with clay-limestone soils, is where these 40 to 50-year-old Pinot Noir vines thrive, in order to deliver this spectacular, fine Pinot.
2020 is looking to be an exceptional vintage for Burgundy. Decanter said "The unique conditions of 2020 mean it is an exceptional Burgundy vintage. The potential was there to make sublime wines."
