This cuvée Alexandrine is very powerful, elegant and fragrant.

Domaine Marc Roy is an impressive Domaine of only four hectares. Their wines are arguably the most accomplished of the village appellation. The cuvée “Alexandrine” was initiated in 2005 with the goal of creating a village appellation wine as accomplished as a great 1er Cru. “Alexandrine” even approaches the quality of some Grand Cru wines.

The wine is layered, concentrated and shows incredible complexity of flavours. The nose is powerful and punchy with black cherry, violet and roasted coffee flavours. The taste is elegant, full bodied and lasting. It is an outstanding wine.

It could be paired with beef, barbecue, beef stew, game meat and a large array of cheeses. This wine can be enjoyed after a year of two of cellaring. It could be cellared for more than 15 years. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This cuvée “Alexandrine” of Gevrey-Chambertin is breathtaking. It is playing way above its league. The amount of work put in by the Roys is huge but it has certainly paid off. It is a treasure for wine collectors and Pinot Noir fans."

Alexandrine Roy knows her vineyards intimately. The wine growing process is regarded as paramount at the Domaine. Vine by vine, the yields are managed to produce only small crops of healthy and concentrated grapes. She identifies the premium vines within her vineyards and exploits them in this amazing cuvée. The grapes are all “millerandées”, or naturally smaller berries than the norm. It has a greater natural concentration. After the harvest is done by hand, Alexandrine uses traditional techniques to extract the flavours of the unique terroir* of Gevrey-Chambertin from these beautiful grapes. The wine is matured in French oak barrels with half being new.

*Terroir is the specific combination of location, vineyard, climate and people that create a wine. Accordingly, different terroirs produce different wines.
