Description

Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey 'La Justice': Legacy in every bottle, Domaine Marc Roy is a small, family-run winery. The domaine is known for its meticulous attention to detail, treating their vineyards like personal gardens. La Justice is a medium to full-bodied red; an expressive nose filled with aromas of dry, black fruit (berries, plums) mingling with earthy and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine delivers a powerful and complex experience with a long finish. Some vintages might showcase subtle oak influence, adding another layer of flavour. Domaine Marc Roy's La Justice has garnered respect from wine critics. Some wine reviewers suggest holding onto the wine for a few years to allow it to fully develop its character.

Tasting note

A combination of fruit aromas, earthy characteristics, and textural elements. The first impression might be a burst of red fruit aromas like tart cranberry, juicy cherry, and perhaps even a hint of sweet strawberry. As the wine opens up, darker fruit notes of black currant and plum could emerge..Look for hints of damp earth, forest floor, or even a touch of minerality. These notes add complexity and intrigue to the aroma profile. Spice: Depending on the vintage and winemaking practices, there might be subtle hints of baking spices like nutmeg or clove. Oak influence could also be present, adding a touch of vanilla or toasty character.

Food pairing

Classic Pairings: Red Meat, La Justice is a natural match for rich, flavourful red meats. Think grilled steaks (especially ribeye or New York Strip), roasted lamb, or a hearty beef bourguignon. Additional options are: Duck and Pheasants, the Pinot Noir's earthiness and fruit profile beautifully complements the taste of duck or other game birds. Consider roasted duck with cherry sauce, pan-seared duck breast, or pheasant with a red wine reduction. Mushroom Dishes: Earthy mushrooms create a wonderful synergy with La Justice's earthy notes. Try pairing it with a mushroom risotto, grilled portobello steaks, or a hearty mushroom and lentil stew.

About the producer

Located in the heart of Gevrey Chambertin, this miniscule 4 hectares estate has passed from father to son for generations, yet the winemaking is now carried out by
Marc’s only daughter Alexandrine. She has made a huge impact on the domaine, having previously spent time in other classic Pinot Noir growing regions, such as
Oregon and Central Otago. Although Alexandrine has no Grand or 1er Crus, her village wines are of an exceptionally high quality coming from very old vines (70 year
old for the Vieilles Vignes).
The Domaine produces a range of Pinot Noir wines, including Gevrey-Chambertin village wines and single-vineyard cuvées like “La Justice”. These wines are highly sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs around the world, and tend to age beautifully.
Domaine Marc Roy is a small producer, with just four hectares of meticulously cared-for vineyards. Alexandrine cultivates these vines almost like a personal garden, ensuring optimal grape quality. Many of the vines are over 100 years old, contributing to the depth and concentration of the resulting wines.
Four Generations of Passion. The winery has been in the Roy family for four generations. Alexandrine Roy, who took over from her father Marc in 2003, is the current winemaker. She represents a new generation of passionate vintners, but remains deeply committed to the traditional methods that have made the Domaine successful.
Due to the a very small production, Domaine Marc Roy Gevrey Chambertin ‘La Justice’ 2020 are available on limited basis.
