It's our absolute pleasure to have any of the wines of Georges Comte, and here we are with three distinctive bottles each from their own vineyard sites. Georges makes wine to a tradition not often seen anymore; the work is truly done in the vineyard here, and distinctive vineyards they are. Nestled in a rather unexplored region that's not-quite-Burgundy, not-quite-Jura, we find a Jurassic climate with Burgundian terroir (primarily limestone) that plays a major role in the wines.
The real cellar work revolves around patience, something Georges certainly doesn't lack. It's a slower pace of life in his humble cellar situated just under the narrow stairs that lead up to his home. The wines are given plenty of time to rest after a simple vinification of direct-pressing and fermentation and elevage in old barrels, never fined or filtered.
Georges doesn't release wines until they're ready, and even then, requires a bit of coaxing to let them go. The wines speak volume to what that slower, simpler pace can achieve; for us, they'd easily be in the same weight class as some of the finest Meursaults around.
