GEANTET-PANSIOT Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes (750ml)
The Geantet-Pansiot Estate was founded in 1954 by Edmond Geantet and Bernadette Pansiot. It started out as a small 3 hectare parcel of vineyards. After having expanded the domain by gradually buying other vines, Edmond’s son Vincent joined the estate in 1977. Vincent Geantet is one of the most competent winemakers in Gevrey-Chambertin today.
Gevrey-Chambertin is a French wine commune, located 15km south of Dijon in the department of the Cote d’Or and the region of Burgundy. It is the most northerly of the well-known communes in Burgundy and the wines are typically well-structured. Domaine Geantet farms about 12 hectares of vineyards today in various appellations. Vincent’s son Fabien has since joined the team.
