Variety: Pinot Noir
An unlikely story is behind La Combe Grisard, yet one that makes complete sense. Winemakers Eric Railsback (of his namesake winery), and Matt Murphy (of Presqu’ile) had long envisioned making wine in Burgundy. As both have made French-inspired wines themselves, they seized an opportunity with the help of Jeremy Seysses of Domaine Dujac. Through Jeremy’s connections, they’ve been able to source fruit from top growers, while the winemaking is done under the watchful eye of the Dujac team. The Montagne de la Combe Grisard is the name of the forested hill above Gevrey, from which Matt and Eric took their inspiration.
“Champ Franc” draws its name from the lieu dit of the same name within the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. The name simply translates to “open field.” This bottle is the epitome of expression of Gevrey coupled with the style of Domaine Dujac.
