2020 Arnaud et Sophie Gevrey-Chambertin 'En Champs'
SKU: B261Regular price $114.95
Arnaud et Sophie was established by husband-and-wife duo Arnaud Sirugue and Sophie Noëllat, both from celebrated Vosne-Romanée estates - Robert Sirugue and Michel Noëllat respectively. The first vintage produced was the 2016 and they made 2 cuvees: Bourgogne Passetougrain Rose which is made from Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes, and Vosne-Romanée Les Barreaux which is made from grapes from their family plot that is situated along the border of the southern part of the famous Cros Parantoux 1er Cru and also on the very border to Petits Monts. In 2018, they started to produce another two cuvees, a Meursault Grands Charrons and a Gevrey-Chambertin En Champs, expanding the portfolio even further.
The Gevrey-Chambertin En Champs is an interesting new terroir for Arnaud and Sophie; the parcel is located on the slope in Gevrey towards Brochon, just below the 1er cru Champeaux. This has lovely depth and balance – 50% whole-cluster vinification helps significantly, and helps balance the oak, placing the wine between Vosne and Gevrey. This works very well with the 2020 vintage, as it gives more lively mid-palate fruit.
