LeClerc: Authentic Gevrey-Chambertain

It is often said that a truly soulful wine will mimic the personality of its maker. A true tale at Domaine Rene LeClerc. The 20H estate, family owned since 1896, has been passed down through the generations with little change. Today it is Francois LeClerc who fosters classic Gevrey-Chambertain at the Domaine. He has a contagious smile and country charm. Living simply among the vines. With the same gentle hand guiding fruit from vine. Practicing organic and adding only a touch of sulfur at bottling. He prefers the grapes to spend three hours vs the more common ten hours in their antique press. The wine is naturally fermented and never filtered.

 All cuvees are treated the same. Two major differences. Soil type and the temperature of the cellar. Francois’s wines go through elevage in a noticeably colder part of the cellar.
