‘Jane Eyre is originally from Melbourne. In 1998, she was working as a hairdresser when she asked a customer, who happened to be the wife of wine writer Jeremy Oliver, if she knew of any wineries where she could do work experience. The Olivers recommended Burgundy, which has since been an inextricable part of Jane’s life. She went on to gain experience working with Cullen in the Margaret River, Felton Road and Ata Rangi in New Zealand and Ernie Loosen in the Mosel. Based in Burgundy since 2004, she has successfully established her ‘micro-négotiant’ business at a small winery in Bligny-lès-Beaune and is listed as one of only 26 ‘Two Star’ Producers in Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2021, a true testament to Jane’s talent and determination.
Jane’s Gevrey-Chambertin is an impressive expression of this prime cru in the Côte de Nuits. The nose has cherry aromas, wild savoury characters with some trademark earthy Gevrey notes. The wine is well balanced and accessible with a lovely dark cherry fruit on the palate, fine grainy tannins and a lasting finish.’ Liberty Wines website
