Pierre Gelin

Domaine Pierre Gelin is a family property of approximately 32 acres covering the villages of Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin. They are the monopole owner of one of the very best Fixin premier crus, the Clos Napoléon.

The estate was created in 1925 by Pierre GELIN. Stéphen GELIN took over its management in 1969 and was then succeeded by Pierre-Emmanuel, his son.

Pierre Emmanuel pays special attention to the cultivation method: the vines are cultivated in an environmentally-friendly manner and tilled. If fertilisers are required, they make sure that they are natural (manure from organic farming).

Vinification follows the traditional methods but adapts in order to continuously improve the quality of the wines. The wines mature in oak barrels – the percentage of new barrels varies depending on the Crus and vintages – to give light woody note, from 20 to 22 months. The wines are then bottled on the estate and are only marketed after being stored for a year or two in the cellars.

Domaine Pierre Gelin endeavors to produce wines that are “pure and honest.”
