Natural cork. The 2021 Gevrey hails from 50-year-old vines in Les Seuvrées (bordering Morey) and the northern, limestone-rich La Justice and Les Crais. Some old vines in Les Jeunes Rois and fruit from Champerrier and En Champs (each on the Brochon side of the appellation), complete the picture. And ‘complete’ is the operative word. There’s no doubt the old vines of Jeunes Rois bring a greater dimension to this cuvée, and we’re glad Leroux decided to keep it in the blend. (It’s so good that he has been tempted to bottle this parcel as a separate cuvée.) On the technical side, each parcel was vinified separately before blending, 80% of the fruit was destemmed, and the wine aged in 600-litre and 225-litre barrels (20% new).
