Winemaker Notes

Intense, perfumed bouquet with fruit aromas and an animal touch. Nicestructure and lovely fleshiness.

Pairs well with grilled and roasted red meat, and full-flavored cheeses.

Jasper Morris
40% whole bunch and a short cuvaison. Rich, intense purple. I don’t find it easy to discern Gevrey on the nose, more the vintage and the house style. Fortunately it is a bit fresher on the palate, with some of the typical strawberry notes, so there is every chance that the terroir will reassert itself later. Good clean structure.

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from 10 hectares from around Brochon, split over 17 different parcels controlled by Bouchard Père. Harvested on September 10 and made with 40% whole-cluster fruit, it has more red than black fruit, offering raspberry, cranberry and light pomegranate aromas; hints of oyster shell emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine-grained tannins, good acidity and a nicely detailed finish. This is a finely crafted Village Cru.
Range: 88-90

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
