Product description

Gérard Raphet - the quiet man of Morey-Saint-Denis - lets his wines do the talking. With some exceptional terroir to play with and some very old vines, his wines exude "terroir". His impressive holdings (12 hectares in total) include five cuvees coming from four of the best Cote de Nuits Grands Crus – Chambertin Clos de Beze, Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche and Clos de Vougeot. He has two cuvees from Clos Vougeot (a standard Grand Cru and a Vieilles Vignes) as well as three top Premier Cru sites, plus village wines from Chambolle Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis.

Raphet’s approach is one of purity and precision over and above power and concentration. But don’t be fooled; his lightly-coloured Pinots have a deceptive intensity, often described as the epitome of purity and finesse, and "a real Burgundy lover’s Burgundy". His light extraction and low percentage of new oak (15%) promote distinct terroir characteristics over winemaking techniques, whilst the incredibly old vines only further accentuate the terroir of each vineyard.
