Another new listing for us, Heresztyn-Mazzini’s star has been well and truly in the ascendancy in recent years. Florence took over the winemaking at the family estate along with husband Simon in 2012 and together they have pushed the wines to a new level of quality (and they were pretty good before!). The farming here follows biodynamic principles and is in conversion to organic certification (the wines will have the official accreditation from the 2019 vintage). They favour the use of whole bunch fermentation, particularly in warm vintages, so many of their 2018s are vinified in this way. Wines are bottled without fining and filtration and are elegant, perfumed and pure- but with no lack of power, intensity and potential to age.
“Made using old vines from several sites in Gevrey Chambertin. Elegant red fruits on the palate with a hint of spice. Structure and depth from the old vine fruit. In oak for 16-18 months, 30% of which is new.”
