Beaune: Domaine François Gay & Fils 1er Cru 'Les Teurons' 2019

This classic, muscular Pinot Noir requires 3 to 5+ years cellaring before starting to reveal its potential, and now has a loyal following amongst our customers. 'Les Teurons' is one of the 42 Premier Cru vineyards (there are no Grand Crus in Beaune) that sits plum in the middle of this 400+ hectare appellation, just outside the iconic home of the Burgundy wine trade.

This Premier Cru Beaune, named 'Les Teurons' has complex game and forest floor aromas supported by concentrated dark cherry and damson flavours against a background of rugged tannins.

Domaine François Gay & Fils

Domaine François Gay consists of seven hectares of vines around the village of Chorey-Lès-Beaune. Just 3,400 cases are produced each year, mostly sold to French restaurants and local customers, which means there is only a small amount available for export. Following his retirement, the domaine is now ably run by François' son Pascal, although François still assists in the winemaking process.

The wines produced by Domaine François Gay et Fils are expressive of the terroir, powerful and fruit-forward, yet with detail and complexity, and which improve with age - it is their intention to produce 'pleasure wines'.
