" Domaine Heresztyn has been a consistently fine producer in Gevrey Chambertin. However, as Florence Heresztyn increasingly takes the reins, they have clearly reached another level of quality. As Clive Coates remarks: "Now they are amongst the top in the village: elegant, composed, full of fruit, full of definition. A major address these days." Florence is treating each vineyard as an individual, and focusing on everything from pruning to vinification to bring out the best in each individual wine. It really warms your soul to taste these wines, see how each is treated as an individual, and how much charm, poise and elegance each has. Overall, these wines remind me of Lauren Bacall-long, elegant and lovely, with lots of poise and a smoldering sensuality. The Clos-St-Denis is the Heresztyn's flagship wine, with an abundance of very fine tannins, but more than enough fruit to balance them. This is unmistakably Grand Cru, and will benefit from cellaring. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)"
