Joseph Roty has been making wines since 1710 and the production has remained minuscule for over 300 years. The Roty family maintains their very old vines in which some were planted in the 1880s and still use very traditional ways of winemaking to this day. Despite having a very low profile, their wines never fail to amaze everyone and can always show the characteristics of a traditional Gevrey-Chambertin. Their wines usually have high concentration and are full of dark fruits' purity, seamlessly integrated with their usual high usage of barrels. Clive Coates MW also commented that Roty's wines are "very distinctive. They are full, very intense, very perfumed and very harmonious. They are certainly immensely seductive.”
We have been following Joseph Roty’s wines in recent years and every of their bottles have impressed us, especially their village wines which show their lovely fruitiness even when young and offer superb value for money. Wine critic Stephen Tanzer had once complimented their village wines, saying, "The village wines, including those from Marsannay, routinely outperform most premier crus from the northern Cote de Nuits. And they are reasonably priced”.

Healthy dark red. Pure, dark aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet and minerals. Densely packed and backward but not at all hard, with its flavors of black cherry, menthol and spices showing lovely floral lift. Still a bit youthfully medicinal, with substantial fine-grained tannins calling for four or five years of aging. Leaves spice and smoked meat nuances behind in the empty glass.
Subject to final confirmation.
