Technical Info

Description

Situated about 10 Km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the finest viticultural villages of the Cote de Nuits. In 1847 Gevrey-Chambertin was the first village of the Cote d'Or to join the village name with that of one of its Grand Crus - hence ‘Gevrey-en-Montagne' became ‘Gevrey-Chambertin. Planted only with Pinot Noir, here one finds the complete 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 limestonerich brown-red soils give Gevrey-Chambertin wines power and body. A great Cote de Nuits classic!
