Winemaker's Notes

Gevrey-Chambertin wines are deep-colored 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 beef bourguignon, coq au vin, grilled meat and great cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Certainly shows the vintage's promise. Loads of dark fruit, cedar and mocha aromas. Rich, yet somewhat taut, flavors of black cherry and forest floor sport bright acidity and admirable balance. Long finish."
93 Points

"Vivid fresh black cherry underlain by charred meat set the key themes for Drouhin's 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin, which offers subtly creamy, mouth-filling generosity allied to a good sense of finishing grip, in which roasted meat, char, chalk, and cherry pit prominently figure. This manages to exhibit a wide tonal range, with especially prominent bass notes, yet remain supple, elegant, and even refreshing. Most of the fruit for this outstanding village wine came from parcels high up on the Combe de Lavaux west if town. I would feel free to follow it for 4-5 years, and as its production (nearly 3,000 cases) is huge by Burgundy standards, it ought not to be difficult to latch onto. "
