Just Taste It

Domaine Joseph Roty

(Gevrey Chambertin)

Joseph Roty

To get an appointment at domain Roty isn't very easy. Like many wine makers of the Côte, this domain doesn't have any problem selling their wine and even can't meet the demanded. We didn't taste in the cellar but in a small room aside the house with view on the backyard and a vineyard situated in the middle of the village.

Elsewhere you may read that Roty's wines have too much wood and he sells them at boutique prices. Both isn't quite right. At least the wines which we tasted made up with the wood very well. And they weren't substantially more expensive compared to other famous vine dressers of the village. Of course you don't make a bargain buy but for that Burgundy is the wrong place anyway.

Bottle Samples:

Bourgogne Cuvée de Pressonnier 2004
Strawberry. For a simple Bourgogne Appelation substantial and dense. Nice!

Marsannay 2004
Red berries, especially strawberry. Good wood. Fine.

Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvée de Champs Chenys 2004
Red and black currant, Gevrey-Terroir, fine relish. In the mouth blackberry with tasty and well-embedded wood notes and slight caramel notes.

Gevrey-Charmbertin 1er Cru Les Fontenys 2004
Shining red. Rather bright fruit, classy with good relish in the finish. Definite tones of wood.

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2004
Still closed and hard to judge. In the fragrance violets and red apple, spices. In the mouth not so full, the finish isn't too long, either. Elegant toast aromas and jam notes. More finesse than strength.
