Gevrey-Chambertin

Situated about 10 Km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the first viticultural villages in the Côte de Nuits. Planted only with Pinot Noir, here we find the hierarchy of the Burgundian appellations: to the North, the premiers crus and to the South the grand crus.

The village appellations are gathered on the bottom of the slope. The sparse and pebbly limestone-rich, brown-red soils give the Gevrey-Chambertin power and body. A great Côte de Nuits classic!

The Gevrey-Chambertin wines typically have high colour, are intensely aromatic, evoking blackcurrant berries and other small red and black fruits, animal notes of musk and fur, and often – once the wine has matured – liquorice. They are powerful, blending tannins with abundant mellowness and a good level of acidity. All in all, solidly built.
