Michel Gay et Fils Chorey-les-Beaune Vieilles Vignes 2018

Excl. tax

Expect a rich and aromatic profile with ripe red fruits like cherries and raspberries, complemented by earthy and spicy undertones. The warm 2018 vintage likely adds to the wine's body and richness, balanced by elegant tannins and a persistent finish.

Michel Gay began in 1992 after he and his brother split up their century old family estate and decided to go it alone. Beginning with a meager 6.5 hectares in 92, the domaine has grown a bit to just over 10 hectares today. In 2000, the fifth generation winemaker, Sébastien Gay returned to the domaine following his studies in Beaune and immediately set about improving things.

The first thing Sébastien did was to eliminate all herbicides in the vineyards and convert to an organic approach. He lives in his vineyards and tends each vine with exacting detail. This small estate in the Cote de Beaune is comprised of vines that average more than 40 years old with many parcels coming in over 60 years of age. Holdings include the always exceptional Chorey- les-Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Crus Serpentières and Vergelesses, three premier crus in Beaune, Toussaints, Coucherias, and Greves, as well as a small plot of Corton in the Renardes vineyard. Recently, Sébastien planted a very small parcel in Coucherias to Chardonnay that has yielded very promising results already.


For the vinification, Sébastien ferments all of the wines in tanks of concrete or stainless steel except for the small parcel of Corton which he uses an open top wooden fermenter. The wines are then transferred by gravity to barrels deep below ground where they undergo anywhere from 14 to 18 months elevage before being bottled. Sébastien uses a combination of coopers for his barrels and new wood is kept to below 40% of the cuvee for all wines except the Corton.
