Notes from North Berkeley Imports:
"The key to discovering the extraordinary diversity of Gevrey-Chambertin is found in the cellars of Domaine Livera. The family’s ancient, ice-cold cellar (in which wine barrels share space with homemade saucisson) and the faded pictures of family members in the vineyards over the ancient hearth give you a sense of just how connected the Liveras are with the rugged beauty and generations-deep traditions of Gevrey. Today Damien Livera is at the helm, the fourth generation of Livera winemakers in Gevrey. Crafting some of the region’s more terroir-true, supple and elegant wines, Damien has quickly established himself as one of the top young winemakers in the Côte de Nuits.
This higher-altitude, chalky vineyard delivers a refined Pinot Noir, evoking an almost Chambolle-like delicacy. Its southern exposure ensures grapes are perfectly ripe every vintage."
