Winemaker's Notes

Gevrey-Chambertin, a large wine-producing village in the Northern part of Cote de Nuits, has one of the greatest areas covered by vines in the whole of Cote dOr. The soil is chalky, with a good covering layer of clayey marl which gives the wines their strength and roundness. Lying on a gentle slope, the vineyards are planted between 240 and 280m above sea-level (720 to 840 feet). Gevrey-Chambertin A.O.C.(Appellation dOrigine Controlee) can only be a red wine, with Pinot Noir the only grape variety. Gevrey-Chambertin wines are deep-coloured and possess intense aromatic bouquet reminiscent of blackcurrant and other red and black berries. The wines are renowned for their power which is always in harmony with a certain dose of smooth tannins. The structure of a Gevrey-Chambertin is such that it will last a long time : 5 to 15 years. Gevrey-Chambertin could be served with boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin, grilled meat and great cheeses.
