Third generation vigneron, Vincent Géantet heads this Gevrey-Chambertin based domaine farming 12 hectares of vines up to 65 years of age, in the North of the Côte de Nuits covering the appellations of Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny and Marsannay. The vineyards are farmed lutte raisonée and fruit is rigorously sorted before aging in 30% new oak for all cuvées from the Bourgogne Rouge through to the Charmes-Chambertin. All of the cuvées are bottled without fining or filtration. Graceful wines showing aromatic purity are the hallmark of this estate and many wine critics have earmarked Domaine Géantet-Pansiot as a producer to follow closely in the future.

Once again there are traces of menthol and wood spice present on the well-layered and elegant aromas of violets, plum, wet stone and sauvage nuances. There is a refined and restrained palate feel to the mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess excellent delineation and a lovely sense of underlying tension on the balanced but notably firm finale. This is good stuff if you have the patience to cellar it for at least 6 to 8 years first.
