Over the last few months, we’ve cracked many large-format Burgundies from 2017—and they’ve all been really pleasurable. Youthful, of course, but there’s an already-accesssible finesse and charm in many cases…particularly when the wines are coming out of Magnum or Jeroboam.
This week, we’ll try out Domaine Gérard Seguin’s 2017 lieu-dit “La Justice,” poured from Jeroboams. This is a single vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, considered by some to be the one of the better sites in appellation that is “merely” a village wne. Seguin’s holdings are an average of 40 years of age, and with their traditional winemaking and 100% destemming, the Pinot fruit here is often gorgeous from the get-go. With a low amount new oak, the wine has some savor on the back end, with all of that classic gorgeous Gevrey fruit.
We’re excited to be pouring this all week long. Hope to see you soon!
ALL WEEK LONG (2/10 – 2/16)
Domaine Gérard Seguin,
Gevrey-Chambertin ‘La Justice’ 2017
