Jérôme Galeyrand is a Loire Valley cheese-maker turned passionate Burgundy winemaker. In 2002 he bought his first vines – a tiny 0.05ha plot. He is based in Gevrey-Chambertin and his now-5ha estate was certified biodynamic in 2015. This wine comes from four parcels in the village of Chambolle grown on clay-limestone soils. The grapes were 100% de-stemmed, then macerated for 3-5 days before fermentation over 18-20 days followed by gentle pressing and 16 months maturation in oak barrels (20% new).
Bursting with aromas of plums, warm spices, chocolate and rose petals, Galeyrand's 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir Antonin is medium-bodied, fleshy and perfumed, with filigree tannins and succulent acids. It will drink well out of the gates.

The 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir comes half from Brochon and half from Gilly/Vosne-Romanée. It offers juicy, ripe black currant and strawberry on the nose – very succulent. The palate is rounded and soft in texture and easygoing in style, leading to a plump finish.

From the communes of Brochon, Comblanchien, Chambolle-Musigny and below Clos Vougeot. Attractive mid purple with a bouquet that takes some coaxing, then a delicious quite rich perfumed fruit behind, some peach notes, very long.

Bourgogne Rouge has a moderately intense robe with purple reflections when young, then becomes ruby and orangey-red after a few years of bottle aging. It presents a wide array of aromas. One of the inherent characteristics of Pinot Noir: its supple mouthfeel and balanced tannins make it approchoable young but also allow it to age.
