Domaine Marc Roy

This is one of the smallest Domaines of importance in the Cote de Nuits. Alexandrine, Marc's daughter is now running the Domaine of 10 acres which is totally concentrated in Geverey Chambertin. The grapes are all hand picked and maceration and fermentation are minimally interfered with, allowing the natural yeast to control the alcohol levels and temperature of fermentation. The Vielle Vigne Gevrey-Chambertin in particular with grapes from 70 year old vines display the best of the Domaine with rich, ripe classical dark berry flavors, full rich and earthy notes that will improve for the next seven years and beyond. There is a lot of new oak used here, but somehow it is fully integrated and not layered. Excellent quality wines under the hands of Alexandrine.
