Not to be confused with the grape variety of the same name, "Sur Gamay" is one of the best areas in Burgundy to grow Chardonnay. This is characteristically, ripe nutty and spicy Saint-Aubin.
Domaine Decelle-Villa is the love child of passionate winemakers Pierre-Jean Villa and Olivier Decelle. Villa, who had already established himself in classic producing regions of northern Rhône, had a dream to bring his wine making expertise to Burgundy. He met his soulmate in Decelle, saviour of Jean Faure in Saint-Emilion and Mas Amiel in southern France. They shared a common vision of vinification: to make great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that reflects the great terroirs of Nuits-Saint-George in Burgundy.
This exciting new venture has proved a success due to the magnum of experience and knowledge from both men. As with all of Decelle’s ventures, the quality of soil is a vital ingredient to the quality of the wine, so the 3 hectares of land are all managed biodynamically.
