2016 Michel Gay Aloxe Corton Cote de Beaune

2016 Michel Gay Aloxe Corton Cote de Beaune

€76.95
 

Burgundy red with lightening rim. Dark berry, herbs and oak on the nose. Medium bodied with flavours of strawberry, raspberry, earth and sweet oak. Smouth and drinking well, with a verry good intensity.

Michel Gay began in 1992 after he and his brother split up their century old family estate and decided to go it alone. Beginning with a meager 6.5 hectares in 92, the domaine has grown a bit to just over 10 hectares today. In 2000, the fifth generation winemaker, Sébastien Gay returned to the domaine following his studies in Beaune and immediately set about improving things. This small estate in the Cote de Beaune is comprised of vines that average more than 40 years old with many parcels coming in over 60 years of age. Holdings include the always exceptional Chorey‐ les‐Beaune, Aloxe‐Corton, Savigny‐les‐Beaune 1er Crus Serpentières and Vergelesses, three premier crus in Beaune, Toussaints, Coucherias, and Greves, as well as a small plot of Corton in the Renardes vineyard. Recently, Sébastien planted a very small parcel in Coucherias to Chardonnay that has yielded very promising results already.
