Gevrey Chambertin



Gevrey-Chambertin
  is the most Northerly of the villages on the Cote de Nuits. As well as a fine selection of Premier Cru sites, it possesses more Grand Cru vineyards than any other commune in Burgundy.

The best situated vineyards lie to the south of the villages, with nine Grand Crus, from North to South along the mid-slope :
  • Mazis-Chambertin, with Ruchottes-Chambertin above (upslope)
  • Chambertin Clos de Beze, with Chapelle-Chambertin and Griotte-Chambertin lying beneath on the slope
  • Chambertin itself, with Charmes-Chambertin lying downslope
  • Latricieres-Chambertin, with Mazoyeres-Chambertin (often sold as Charmes) below
There then follows a 1er Cru vineyard - les Combottes - before the border with Morey, and the Grand Crus resume with Clos de la Roche.

Of the 1er Cru vineyards I would single out the following as potentially giving great wines - though only from the better producers of course :
  • Clos St. Jacques
  • Lavaux St. Jacques
  • Les Cazetiers
  • La Combe aux Moines
  • Les Combottes
The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin  tend to be full, earthy and often meaty in  character. The better examples have  the richness, vigour and velvety texture that earned Chambertin the nickname "the King of Burgundy". If you seek perfumed, more seductive wines then consider Chambolle, Vosne and Volnay.
