Frédéric Esmonin

An Atherton Wine Imports Direct Domaine

Esmonin is becoming one of the most consistent, high quality producers in Gevrey. They are now using a new bladder-press and have excellent control over the amount of pressure exerted on the grapes, which are picked only when they have reached ideal ripeness. After a short cold maceration gives the wines an extra dimension of fruit, they are aged in carefully selected French oak barrels of Allier and Nevers forest wood made by Radoux and Berthomieu, two of the very best coopers. Wines are aged in barrels of varying age and toast and then blended in order to achieve optimum balance and complexity.

Praise from the Critics:

"Of special interest here are the multiple reasonably priced Gevrey grand crus." (Tanzer - IWC Mar/Apr 2006)

"The wines are rich in colour, virile, profound and concentrated." (Clive Coates - Cote D'Or)

"Together, André and Frédéric have propelled their Domaine into the upper échelons of Gevrey quality." (Remington Norman, MW - The Great Domaines of Burgundy)
