Maison Shaps Gevrey-Chambertin 2014
Our vineyard site, Les Croix des Champs, is situated in the plain just next to the Route National. These old vines produce a pinot noir that has a unique and distinctive character. The grapes are destemmed and partially crushed with 15% whole cluster fruit included. We ferment the pinot to full dryness on the skins with extended post fermentation maceration. This is Burgundian terroir at its best, with a good balance of earth and red fruit notes and a gentle oak impact. The palate structure is balanced by soft tannins, which allow the earth and fruit nuances to come forward.
