What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
We have always considered the Gevrey “Aux Combottes” to be quite special. In all the years we have been purchasing this wine, it has never failed to delight and satisfy. Of course, it is one of those rare 1er Crus that, geographically, is literally surrounded by Grand Cru vineyards. In this case, it is encircled by Latricieres Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin and Clos de la Roche. The Lignier parcel is 0.14 hectare and the vines therein were planted in 1957. Obviously, production is exceedingly limited.
