89 points, Vinous (July 2019)
"The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice is another incredibly inviting wine in this range. Blood orange, red berry fruit and a touch of whole cluster savoriness all run through this mid-weight, bright village-level Gevrey. Here, too, the purity Jérôme Galeyrand coaxes from his vines is remarkable."
In the most Northern part of the appellation, grown on limestone and sandy soils, this wine is the perfect introduction to Jérôme’s style. 100% de-stemmed and just 20% new oak barrels, this shows great purity and good plush fruit.
As you head north-east towards Gevrey-Chambertin, in the small village of Saint Philibert, you will find a small hamlet of what can best be described as industrial sheds. It is in the very last of these that Jérôme has built his new cellars and winemaking facilities. Production is minuscule and very hands-on and Jérôme is aiming to produce wines that speak of their place.
