    There’s no producer in Burgundy whose wines have seen a more impressive uptick in quality and ambition over the last few years than those of Jérôme Galeyrand.

    This domaine is situated in Gevrey-Chambertin, in the beautiful hamlet of Saint Philibert. Gevrey-Chambertin, Fixin, Marsannay and Côte de Nuits village are specialities of Jérome. Production is tiny and quantities limited.

    In The Cellar
    The harvest is carried out manually and in small boxes, then the Jérôme Galeyrand Bourgogne Chardonnay Orane grapes are pressed whole and a spontaneous fermentation takes place with native yeasts in barrels for 3 to 4 weeks and without adding any oenological products. The wine is then aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Finally, it is bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphites.

    In The Vineyard
    The grapes used to make Jérôme Galeyrand Bourgogne Chardonnay Orane come from various plots spread across the Côtes de Nuits. A total of 0.42 hectares of vines planted on clay and limestone soils that have been organically cultivated using biodynamic treatments since 2008. They only use copper, wettable sulphur, infusions and natural products and every process takes into account the lunar phases.
    The 2021 Bourgogne Chardonnay is bright and steely. Tangerine oil, white flowers and a touch of soice all take shape. There's very good depth and density for the vintage.
