We are thrilled to have received a number of older vintages of sublime Chardonnay from the legendary Georges Comte.
Georges’ home and cellar can be found in Émagny, a sleepy village in his native Doubs. Despite sitting somewhere between the Jura, Burgundy and Alsace, it is something of a forgotten land for wine.
Since 1989 he has made wine from eight hectares of vines planted over a magnificent terroir akin to Puligny-Montrachet named Le Moutherot. Here, that perfect combination of clay and limestone produces wines of great structure, minerality and depth.
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 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.
These are decidedly old fashioned wines that reveal themselves slowly over time. Offering a true taste of yesteryear, they are as pure and soulful as you’ll find.
We only have a small number of each vintage available, so please please be quick.
Georges’ wines are now available on Tutto a Casa
