Alexandrine Roy has managed her family Domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin since 2003, a 4th generation grower with a collection of 3.5 hectares of tiny parcels, all at the village level. Her plots are all very old vines (45-100+ years), meticulously farmed by her own hands and managed organically. With careful selection, total destemming, gentle winemaking and low levels of new oak she coaxes Premier Cru quality out of her parcels.
Her Gevrey-Chambertin 'Clos Prieur' is a magnificent parcel of 60 year old vines, on iron-rich clay over limestone, below Mazis-Chambertin. Sees 30% new oak and exhibits a deep core of gorgeous, dense, spicy dark fruits and a plush, sensual texture.
