Description

Details

Delicious energetic Burgundy with supple silky fruits and beautifully interwoven oak, now and old. The original Heresztyn was an immigrant labourer in Burgundy's vineyards. Decades on, his name is synonymous with high quality Pinot Noir from some of the region's most celebrated vineyards.

An estate founded by a former Polish vineyard worker of Louis Trapet. Domaine Heresztyn has been one of the consistently fine producers in Gevrey Chambertin. However, as Florence Heresztyn increasingly takes the reins, they have clearly reached another level of quality. The vineyard is now undergoing conversion to biodynamic viticulture. As Clive Coates remarks: “Now they are amongst the top in the village: elegant, composed, full of fruit, full of definition. A major address these days.” These are wonderful glossy precocious wines with eloquent morello cherry and bilberry fruit and a certain stoniness that betokens good ageing potential. Plenty of energy, vinosity and concentration here.
