The Roy family has been cultivating grapes for four generations and in 1982, they began bottling their own production to fulfil their passion. With much effort and an acute focus on further enhancing their wines, Marc and his daughter Alexandrine bought a few more blocks of vineyards to increase the size of the Domaine to four hectares. In 2003, Alexandrine took over the Domaine with the intent on further raising the bar. Gradually, she reduced the yields, to produce fewer but better grapes with greater concentration of flavour. The vineyards are grown organically, strictly maintained, with great attention to detail.
The Domaine is composed of 3.5 hectares of Pinot Noir for four different cuvées. The ‘Vielles Vignes’ or old vines cuvée is made from the oldest vines of the estate – averaging 70 years old.
Ripe but fresh aromas include those of plum, black cherry, cassis and plenty of earth influence. The opulent, concentrated and powerful larger-scaled flavors coat the palate with sappy dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the balanced, long and complex finale. This is a very good Gevrey villages and worth your interest.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The Gevrey Vieilles Vigne is classic: 80-year-old vines, cool and vivid for the vintage. It has a slight hint of iron from the red clay soil, but is still airy and vivacious with lovely mid-palate fruit. A gorgeous, hedonistic village with plenty of fruit, but still elegant and light-footed.
