The Humbert brothers, Frédéric and Emmanuel, have wine in their blood and the land deeply rooted in their hearts. Men of few words, but always precise and profound, they embody the wisdom of the countryside, or rather of the vineyard. The Humbert Frères estate has always been a family affair, with the two brothers, cousins of the Dugats, taking charge of it since 1989. They cultivate around 7 hectares of vineyards around Gevrey-Chambertin, all owned by them. Their vineyard parcels are remarkable, and the plant material, mostly old vines (over 40 years old), is equally impressive. While the Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru is the flagship of the estate, the Humberts also have the opportunity to cultivate very high-quality premier crus, such as Poissenot (adjacent to Estournelles, Lavaux, and Clos St Jacques). The winemaking is traditional, with destemmed grapes, punching down and pumping over regularly during rather long macerations. The wines are structured for aging and express themselves wonderfully after a few years of cellaring.
