The Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice has all the aromatic and tannic intensity characteristic of this appellation. On this stony ground, grapes acquire aromas of heated rock, Madagascar pepper, Espelette chilli pepper, and ripe black fruits. On the palate, you will find concentrated but fine rounded tannins. A fresh herb note (Chartreuse) reveals itself in a finish with lingering salinity, complementing the elegance of this fine example of a Gevrey-Chambertin wine. The vines are carefully chosen by sélection massale (visual selection of the most robust vine plants). Disbudding helps to balance the vines; trellising allows air to circulate through the foliage; the vines may be lightly trimmed after flowering. This careful vineyard management naturally ensures low yields, so that a greenharvest is rarely necessary. Sorting on the vine takes place two to three weeks before the harvest. Grapes are picked by hand throughout the estate. Grapes are carefully sorted on two sorting tables, and then transferred by gravity into thermo-regulated tanks. Depending on the vintage, there will be around 50% of whole bunches. Fermentation uses native yeasts. There is little mechanical intervention during vatting, where natural infusion is preferred. Only the first pressed juices are kept during pressing. Wines are aged for 12 months in barrels (20% new barrels), and 6 months in stainless steel tanks. The amount of sulphur added is kept to a minimum. ABV 13%
