About Domaine Jayer Gilles
Many Jayers make wine in Burgundy, but Gilles Jayer is easily among the best of the bunch. His wines are flamboyant and fleshy, marked by ripe, sweet fruit and lavish, spicy new oak. The estate's Côte de Nuits-Villages is always a perfect ringer in a blind tasting with Burgundies of higher pedigree. Domaine Jayer-Gilles is also well known for its Pinot Noirs from the Echezeaux Grand Cru vineyard. Even the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune and Hautes-Côtes de Nuits bottlings reflect the style of Gilles's more highly pedigreed wines.
