Must-Have 2016 Charmes-Chambertin from Cult Gallois
January 15, 2020
A Note from Sergio

Dominique Gallois, who helms the cult Domaine Gallois estate, is a strict traditionalist, and he makes wines of stunning depth, elegance, and purity. I have an abiding passion for winemakers who use their regional history as their guide, who consider the environmental impact of their winemaking, and who emphasize earnest, terroir-driven wines over fashion, marketing, or easy sales--and Dominique does all of these things. I love Domaine Gallois for all these reasons, but most of all, I love Gallois because this family-owned estate makes extraordinarily good wines.

Dominique believes that his terroir is responsible for the outstanding quality of his wines. After harvest and pressing, the only thing he does to the juice is daily batonnage, or a brief stirring of the juice in barrel to circulate the lees. Everything else is left to nature, and after tasting Dominique's wines, you'd have a very hard time arguing with his process. Dominique's wines are a breath of fresh air for those of us who appreciate elegance, subtlety and a distinct sense of place in our wines.

Though Domaine Gallois flies under the radar of many wine-lovers, its wines also slide under the price point of most other producers. Today, I'm very excited to announce that I managed to secure a new allocation of Gallois' superb 2016 Charmes-Chambertin, and I'm offering this gloriously rich, vivid wine with special pricing--IWM's Burgheads won't want to miss it!

Domaine Gallois Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 750ml
Gallois Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 750ml
Price: $249.99

Expansive, structured, and sophisticated, this ’16 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is a knockout. Brambly berries, sun-warmed cherries, fresh earth, pressed wildflower petals, peppery spices, and sauvage earth mingle in this intense, focused wine. Beautifully textured, this Charmes-Chambertin layers its dense tannins with serious dry extract and a wonderful acidic spine, and it glides with power and finesse to a complex, balanced, and resonant finish. Coming from a parcel of vines situated along the border with its famous neighbor Le Chambertin, Gallois’ Charmes-Chambertin is one of the most powerful and structured Charmes-Chambertins on the market. This grand cru derives from a third-acre parcel of vines that Dominique Gallois’ grandfather planted in 1910 (since replanted); this wine ages for about 18 months in barrels, half new. It’s a must-have wine for Burgundy connoisseurs. Just 130 cases made. more info
