Dominique Gallois

 

Dominique Gallois

In 1901, Monsieur Bizot (Dominique’s great grandfather), built a superb cellar and home in Gevrey-Chambertin. At that time, the domaine owned “parcels” of vines stretching from Gevrey all the way down to Volnay. However, multiple successions split the estate amongst several families. M. Bizot’s daughter Charlotte Gallois inherited 2.5 hectares of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin that her son, Jean Gallois, managed.

In 1989 Dominique Gallois decided to market the production of bottled estate wine. The philosophy at Gallois is simple: rational control and hard work in the vines allow for the ability to do less in the cellar. The entire approach is predicated on the notion that quality comes from the place, age of the vines and that year’s climate. In the cellar the process begins by rigorously sorting the hand harvested fruit, and after a cold soak of 2-5 days, the fruit is fermented using native yeasts. Elevage takes place between 18-24 months in oak casks.

 
 

Domaine Dominique Gallois Bourgogne Rouge

Domaine Gallois' 2013 Bourgogne rouge shows ripe fruit on the nose, along with a precise and focused palate. Fine tannins and a lengthy finish make for an over achieving pinot noir at its price point.
