This Gevrey has a lovely strength of colour with powerful berry fruit from the aromas which carry on through to the palate together with a smokiness. Lovely ripe tannins together with the intense fruit makes this wine something really special. A perfect accompaniment to all red meats.

Buy this if...you love rich, red Burgundy.

A classic Pinot from the Golden Slope, this is ripe fruit, elegance and a smoky intensity. Perfect.

The Producer

Domaine Gallois is a small, 2 hectare, estate of just four hectares of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin. Dominique Gallois took over this domaine from his father in 1989 and still lives in the house, using the cellar that his great grandfather built in 1901. A true boutique estate, Dominique has holdings from Villages to Grand Cru.

The Winemaker

Dominique Gallois believes that hard work in the vineyard is better than the over-use of pesticides and herbicides. The grapes are meticulously sorted by the pickers and then again at the winery. Dominique likes to employ the traditional Burgundian technique of 'pigeage' (or punching down of the cap) during fermentation before ageing in Allier oak barrels for over 15 months, with 25% new oak to add spice and structure, until blending and bottling.

The Region

The Cotes de Nuits is the northern part of the famous Cote d'Or, Burgundy's classic red wine region, producing rich, complex wines from the Pinot Noir grape.This region is large in stature but small in size, with vineyards stretching from the lighter styles of Marsannay in the north to the full bodied Nuits St Georges in the south, with these two villages just 15 miles apart.The vineyard sites squeeze in a total of 25 Grand Crus and over a hundred Premier Cru sites, with some vineyards split amongst many individual growers who make tiny quantities of wines from just a few rows of vines.

Venison Stew with Sage-infused Glazed Carrots

Rich earthy flavours call for rich earthy wines. Thankfully most countries offer a red that fits this category, think Bordeaux or Burgundy and you won't be disappointed. For a real treat try Domaine Dominique Gallois' Gevrey-Chambertin.

Carolina Style Ribs

A classic Southern barbecue recipe with a sweet, sticky rub calls for a rich, spice-laden red to square up to the complex layers of spice in the dish. Cook long and slow with a glass of Gevrey-Chambertin in hand.
