“This red is marked by succulent acidity and fine balance. Bright cherry, strawberry, currant, graphite and subtle floral aromas and flavors are detailed and intense. Packs a lot of flavor and complexity into a slim frame, with integrated oak. Best from 2021 through 2035.”-94WS
Clos de Meixvelle is a monopole of Domaine Pierre Gelin. The vineyard was purchased by Pierre Gelin in 1952 who began farming it in the mid-1940s. The vines were planted by Pierre and are over 70 years old. The vineyard sits near the heart of the village on a shallow slope of alluvial soil over a base of limestone. Grapes are completely de-stemmed and only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The wine was matured for 20-24 months in used Burgundian pièce.
