Story

Alex Gambal arrived to France in 1993 from the United States. Shortly after, he founded “Maison Alex Gambal” in 1997. It took a mere 20 years for the Domaine to build its astounding reputation in Burgundy, making it one of the region’s finest family-made wines. 

Auxey-Duresses is located between the winegrowing areas of Saint-Romain and Meursault along the Route d ’Autun. With its hamlets named Petit-Auxey and Melin, Auxey Duresses is undoubtedly one of the sanctuaries of Celtic and Gallo-Roman vine growing in Burgundy, thanks to its former collaboration with the Abbey of Cluny.

Vineyard

This Pinot Noir is sourced from vines aging between 35-40 years olf, certified organic, and yielding 14hl/ha. The plot is situated on East, South-East facing slopes, planted on marl-limestone and pebbly soils.

Vinification

Grapes are hand-harvested, sorted and 100% de-stemmed. The vinification stretches over 17 days in stainless-steel vats, with regular punch downs and pump overs. The fruit is pressed, and the wine is moved into oak barrels (30% new) by gravity flow. Maturation lasts abou 14 months in oak, including malo-lactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

The wine has a deep ruby tint with purple tinges. The nose is of ripe red and black fruit, laced with floral components. On the palate, the tannin is subtle with well-balanced flavors of fruit.

Food Pairing

This wine will pair well with glazed ham and collard greens, as well as with a light lentil curry.
