Winemaker's Notes

Gevrey-Chambertin is the northernmost of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. The village of Gevrey is very old; in 630 it still bore the Latin name "Gibriacus," a derivative of "grabos." The meaning of this word is unclear, but seems to be related to "beard", either a bearded man or animal, i.e., a goat. "Chambertin", from "Campus Bertini", later "Champ de Bertin", or "Bertin's field", immortalizes the peasant who first planted this greatest vineyard of the commune. In 1847, the commune of Gevrey became Gevrey- Chambertin by decree of King Louis-Philippe.

Half of the premiers crus of Gevrey-Chambertin lie scattered around the perimeter of the grands crus; the other half occupy a steep, southeast-facing slope to the north, and are superior to the former by virtue of their exposition and calcareous clay soils. The Lavaux vineyard is situated in the northwest extremity of the commune at the top of the slope, facing southward and adjacent to Les Verriolles and Les Estournelles, and often appends the name of the Clos Saint-Jacques vineyard, nearby, to its own. With 24 acres it is Gevrey- Chambertin's largest premier cru. Domaine Louis Jadot is proprietor of .54 acres in this superb but atypical cru acquired in 1985 through the purchase of Domaine Clair Daü. It produces a wine of exceptional finesse and a suppleness unusual for a wine of Gevrey, with delicate tannic structure and silky, refined fruit and an elegant, lingering finish.

"Medium red. Aromas of candied cherry and dried rose; more perfumed than the Clos Saint-Jacques. Supple and medium-bodied, with firm minerally acidity framing the flavors of red fruits, licorice and game. Less firmly structured than the Clos Saint-Jacques but finishes with excellent length and grip."
-International Wine Cellar 90-93
