Florence Heresztyn and her husband, Simon Mazzini, took command of her family’s estate (Domaine Heresztyn) beginning with the 2012 vintage. Although it has only been two years, their wines are radically different than those produced by her father, Stanislaus. While this new adventure is still in its infancy, the family’s Burgundian roots are quite deep, and the quality of this “new” Domaine’s lineup is impressive.

Description

“CELLAR INFORMATION Working the vine: We place great importance on respecting nature and the environment, and use environmentally friendly pest control. All of the estate’s plots are ploughed. To improve the yield, once pruned our vines are de-budded and thinned early, by hand. We may choose a green harvest.
Harvest method: Harvested by hand and grapes are placed in small perforated boxes. The harvest is sorted on a vibrating sorting table, and then by hand.
Winemaking process: This wine is made using 50-55 % whole bunches. The fermentation process begins using the naturally present yeast, following a pre-fermentation cold maceration process. Frequent pigeage, 3-4 times per day, to obtain maximum extraction.
Maturation: In oak barrels (30% new wood) for 16-18 months.
Bottling: We bottle our wines ourselves on the estate, with no fining or filtration, and according to the lunar calendar, producing wonderfully clear wines with the best possible flavours. VINEYARD INFORMATION This 11-hectare estate was founded by Polish emigree Jean Heresztyn in 1932 and is to be found in the heart of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin in the Cotes de Nuits. Jean began by growing onions but ended up working for several domaines in the region including Trapet and Gelin. Today the estate is run by Stanislas, Bernard, Eva and Chantal Heresztyn, brothers and sister in laws, with Stanislas’s daughter Florence taking an increasingly firm grip of the reins. Their holdings include a number of Gevrey Premiers Crus including Les Goulots, and La Perrière, plus a greatly admired Morey St-Denis Premier Cru Les Millandes. This particular Pinot Noir is from 50 year-old vines and is aged in Allier and Troncais barrels for 18 months.”

Vinous 91

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Goulots 1er Cru has a tightly-wound nose with crunchy cranberry and redcurrant fruit, nice freshness here with a light oyster shell tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy-textured opening, red fruit with a liberal dash of black pepper, leading to quite a feisty, attractive finish, though this appears to ebb away after 5-10 minutes in the glass. Give this another year in bottle. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2018 red tasting. [Neal Martin, 22/11/2022]

Daniel Grigg NR

A deep ruby in colour. Intense cassis and raspberry scents with a touch of pepper. On the palate, dense and refined with further red-fruit notes. An elegant and harmonious wine with well-balanced tannins and a persistent finish. Drink with roast duck and pomegranates in a walnut sauce, quail casserole or noisettes d’agneau chasseur with wild mushrooms and shallots. [Daniel Grigg, 01/03/2022]
