alex gambal buys 5 hectares – or does he…

Edit/Note: I discussed this with Alex and apparently this does not reflect his actual position, but he also doesn’t want to comment further until everything is ironed out. Will let you know when it is.

Thumbs up for Clive – still first with the news:

Philippe Brenot of Santenay has sold his 5 hectare estate to American négociant Alex Gambal. Pride of place in the Brenot holding is 37 ares of Bâtard-Montrachet. The line-up also includes Chassagne-Montrachet premier cru En Remilly, Santenay premier cru Les Passetemps, and village Puligny, Chassagne and Santenay. The white wines have a high reputation here, though Brenot used to sell over half his production off in bulk. In addition to his life as a vigneron Brenot is also a professor at the Beaune Wine School. Gambal was one of his pupils.

Clive’s review of Jasper’s book is also worth reading.
