Domaine Henri Rebourseau - Gevrey-Chambertin 'La Brunelle' 2018


In December 2018, the Bouygues family joined the Henri Rebourseau estate. As majority shareholders, Martin and Olivier Bouygues have joined forces with the de Surrel family to continue the estate's heritage. The Domaine conserves its family ethos by preserving the unity of its wine-growing heritage and seven generations of traditions.

The Domaine Henri Rebourseau comprises vineyards stretching from the villages of Gevrey-Chambertin to Vougeot, cultivating some of the oldest plots upon the Côte de Nuits. 

La Brunelle is situated at the heart of the projecting ledge which forms an excellent silt trap. This climat has been described by experts as “one of the greatest successes of the Combe of Lavaux’s alluvial cone.” On the surface brown soils predominate, just below are the limestone gravels that are effective in maintaining the heat. In the lower part of this climat, clustered piles of calcareous stones are to be found. A layer of sand and clay is situated two metres below the surface.

A bright, clear appearance, intense in color with deep violet flecks. Aromas of jammy cherries are sometimes revealed. An aromatic persistence that outclasses its Village appellation.
