Lou Dumont Gevrey Chambertin 2012

Lou Dumont Gevrey Chambertin 750ML 2012   
Sku: 000000037517

Driven by a passion for Burgundy and the dream of making wine, Japanese Sommelier Koji Nakada left his native Tokyo in 1996 and moved to Beaune to study oenology at the prestigious CFPPA. The first thing he had to do was learn French. He enrolled in language class at Dijon where his teacher was the lovely Jae Hwa Park, an expatriated Korean. During Koji’s studies in Beaune, and during his subsequent internships at Chateau Kirwan in Bordeaux, and at small houses in Champagne and Alsace, the two dated and then married. They formed Maison Lou Dumont, their artisanal micro-negociant domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin, in 2000. Koji’s goal is to produce pure, honest, regionally correct Burgundy of minimal manipulation from organically farmed grapes. Though not an official qualifier for the Lou Dumont wines, some of the grapes for their Bourgogne Rouge come from a biodynamic vineyard in the Côte Chalonnaise. A strict minimum vine age of 30 years is imposed for all grapes used (though grapes for the Gevrey-Chambertin that come from Lieu-dit La Platière feature 75 year old vines). Koji and Jae Hwa believe that a respectful and balanced approach to the environment and viticultural practices elicits the highest quality juice. The three Japanese characters on their label symbolize ‘sky,’ ‘earth,’ and ‘man,’ – all three together form the equivalent concept ‘terroir.’
