2022 Frédéric Esmonin Bourgogne Rouge “Les Genévrières”, Burgundy, France

Les Genevrieres glows light red in the glass, yielding aromas of tart cranberry, ripe strawberry, and hints of brown spices. On the palate, soft cherry fruit eases into fleshed-out raspberry elements. Bright and elongated, tying together a very charming, easy-to-drink Burgundy.


There are 19 units left in stock.


After a short cold maceration gives the wines an extra dimension of fruit, they are aged in carefully selected French oak barrels of Allier and Nevers forest wood made by Radoux and Berthomieu, two of the very best coopers. Wines are aged in barrels of varying age and toast and then blended in order to achieve optimum balance and complexity.


Domaine Frédéric Esmonin, from Burgundy's Gevrey-Chambertain appellation, is a true family collaboration that consists of Frederic, his father, André, and his mother, Michele. They have been farming their 10-acres of family vineyards for generations and selling their fruit to the likes of Drouhin, Jadot, and Leroy. In 1988 they began to commercialize their own labels today they are producing consistently high-quality, beautiful wines that represent a great value considering their pedigree.

Access to some of the best vineyard plots in the region is Esmonin’s greatest fortunes. Today they have Grand Cru parcels in Ruchottes-Chambertin (50+ Year Old Vines), Mazis-Chambertin (40+ Year Old Vines), Chambertin Clos de Beze, Bonnes-Mares and Chambertin. They also have Premier Cru parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin: "Estournelles St-Jacques," "Lavaux St-Jacques," "Champonnets." The rest comes from: Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Jouises Vieilles Vignes," Nuits "Hauts Pruliers," Gevrey "Clos Prieur," Pernand Vergelesses "Les Boutieres," Cote de Nuits Village "La Belle Vue," and Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits. And since the best Burgundy wines start with the best grapes, Esmonin uses their decades of farming experience to optimize these plots.
