Domaine Tortochot Gevrey-Chambertin Les Jeunes Rois 2017
Fruity wine, firm, good length, and well-rounded in the mouth. 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.
100% Pinot Noir. Since the late 1800s, the Tortochot family has been making high-quality wines in Gevrey-Chambertin. At the end of the 19th century, Paul Tortochot purchased some land in Gevrey-Chambertin and began to sell his wines in the Place des Marronniers market. His son Felix expanded the family holdings when he married Louise Liebault and the couple joined their vineyards. The tradition continued with Gabriel Tortochot and currently resides with his daughter Chantal, a 4th-generation winemaker who learned the family's trade secrets by working closely with her father up until he passed away in 2001.
