Older Vintages from Georges Comte

After what has been far too long, we are pleased to share another collection of sublime Chardonnay from the legendary Georges Comte.

Georges’ home and cellar can be found in Émagny, a sleepy village in the Doubs. Despite sitting somewhere between the Jura, Burgundy and Alsace, the region is something of a forgotten land for wine.

Since 1989 he has worked from eight hectares of vines planted over a magnificent terroir named Le Moutherot, where the perfect combination of firm clay and limestone produces wines of great structure, depth and longevity.

To visit here is to take a step back in time. In the old cellar underneath his home, Georges does things the same way he has since that very first vintage, ageing the wine in old barrels for at least two years, following the moon’s cycles and bottling by hand. He does not filter the wines, adds nothing at all and keeps the bottles in the cellar until he thinks they are ready to drink.

They are decidedly old fashioned wines that reveal themselves slowly over time and these latest releases go back several decades, offering a true taste of yesteryear.

Georges’ wines have been in high demand the world over in recent times and as a result, we only have a small amount of several of these vintages, so please be quick.

Georges’ wines are now available on Tutto a Casa
