Philippe Leclerc Gevrey Chambertin les Platieres
Philippe Leclerc butts the mold of the Burgundy winemaker and certainly has created his own path. He forgoes the more conservative uniform blue blazer, shirt and tie, hardly cares about ratings, and is not a promoter. At the age of 13, Philippe left school to work in the vineyard with his father. His family has owned land in Gevrey-Chambertin for over a hundred years so he grew up surrounded by vines. Philippe produced his first vintage in 1979 and has developed a loyal following, justifiably. Philippe Leclerc pulls off magnificent Pinot Noirs in the Côte d’Or.
This is where Pinot Noir reigns as the very definition of a great Burgundy. Gevrey-Chambertin produces only red wines and the marl and limestone soil fosters the quintessential powerful style. With rich dark colors and more tannins than most red Burgundies, these wines are meant for long aging. Powerful aromatically, it develops a lot of roundness and finesse. It will accompany very well cheeses and red meats.
