Philippe Leclerc’s vineyard

Philippe Leclerc’s vineyard. Philippe has inherited a precious winemaking estate from his ancestors. Vineyards, which he works with respect: Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin. Generic Burgundies, the Bons Bâtons, a blend, which has all the greatness of a Chambolle-Musigny, a wine it has aged next to. The Gevrey-Chambertin first growth and the Combe aux Moines, velvety and very complex, deserve to be put down for ten years or so. Wines he lets mature lovingly, overseeing them like children, and which make it worth his while. A very Rock’n Roll winemaker who has bought himself a copy of Henry Fonda’s chopper, not forgetting his 1980 Ferrari Excalibur. A slightly mad artist, who has transformed his house, in the middle of the village, into a work of art, a gothic cavern, a Dali house. Philippe likes creating sculptures, strange characters – a mix between demons and angels. His very own dream world that he willingly shows off to his visitors. Rue des Halles. Tel.: +33 3 80 34 30 72
