Raphet’s vine rows border premier cru ‘Clos Saint Jacques,’ arguably the heart of Gevrey’s top premier cru row in the “combe” of Gevrey, benefitting from the valley’s cooler winds. Average vines here are 50 years old.

Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity. This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines. Raphet Burgundy is handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and method that hasn’t changed in more than four generations. Pinot Noir vines at the estate are on average very old, with many surpassing 100 years."
