Domaine Rene Leclerc Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Combes aux Moines 2010
This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
Rene Leclerc is a 25-acre estate in Gevrey-Chambertin. Rene and his younger brother, Philippe Leclerc, inherited their domains from their father in 1974 and have worked them separately ever since. Today Rene works with his son Francois. The estate has a Grand Cru parcel in Griotte-Chambertin, and Premier Crus in the Gevrey-Chambertin vineyards of La Combe au Moine, Lavaux-Saint-Jacques and Les Champeaux. There are also village crus.
