    Champonnets is superbly positioned between the lower slopes of the Combe St Jacques and the heartland of Gevrey’s Grands Crus vineyards. Bright scarlet colour, an abundance of red fruits, cherry, raspberry and fresh currants. It has the domaine’s vintage character this year of velvet like tannins, crystalline fruit flavours, mouth-watering and fresh on the finish.

  • Neal Martin, January 2024, Score: 91-93

    The 2022 Gevrey-Chambertin Champonnets 1er Cru has much more fruit intensity than the Evocelles: Morello cherries, wild strawberries and touches of rooibos. Lovely. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannins. Elegant and tensile. A heartwarming sense of sapidity and sensuality on the finish draws you back for another sip. This is very promising. Drinking Window: 2026-2043.

  • Burghound, January 2024, Score: 90-93

    A riper and distinctly Gevrey nose of forest floor, the sauvage and poached plum displays plenty of earth character. There is notably more power, weight and muscular if notably less finesse to the bigger-bodied flavours that terminate in a robust but not hard finish that exhibits very fine length. This is quite promising though it's also definitely a wine that will require extended keeping. Drinking 2032+.

  • Jasper Morris MW, November 2023, Score: 90-93

    Badly hailed and on 161/49 rootstock so will need to be pulled out soon. A fresh ruby colour with some depth. Lifted bright full raspberry, then cherry behind, just a slightly drier finish, Plenty of bottom to this but not quite together at the moment. Drink from 2029-2035.

Louis is the seventh generation of vignerons in Burgundy from a family who is mostly known for their Côte de Beaune wines such as Pommard and Volnay however, several Côte de Nuits appellations including Gevrey Chambertin were added to the repertoire in 1978. Many of these are parcels of extremely old vines, and the wines have a natural concentration and silky persistence. Today Louis vinifies and ages his wines in Chambolle Musigny in the same cellar as his other half, Ghislaine Barthod. In fact, it has been said that his influences have helped create the celestial beauties that have risen from her vineyards. Both are ably assisted by their son, Clément. He has been instrumental in Louis Boillot’s recent purchase of vineyards in Beaujolais, Moulin à Vent, where these skilled Burgundians bring their expertise to the Gamay grape.Read less

Region

Gevrey Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
