Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Rating 94-97. (harvested on September 25, about a week before the Chambertin; 20% vendange entier): Bright medium red; lighter than the Chambertin. Great perfume and detail on the nose, hinting at red berries, rose petal and spices. Utterly silky yet high-pitched in the mouth; less powerful than the Chambertin but with ineffable high-pitched perfume and saline lift to the raspberry, mineral and white pepper flavors. Finishes with outstanding aromatic persistence and lift: this one made me shiver with pleasure. Marchand has two totally different Chambertins in the making in 2012, both of them potentially great.
BH 94
Burghound.com
An overtly spicy and very fresh nose is composed of pure red currant, plum and earth scents. The broad-shouldered and well-concentrated flavors are impressively rich but also don't lack for vibrancy on the mineral-inflected, detailed and moderately austere finish. There is very good if not genuinely knock-out length though yet again do note that this will require an extended cellar snooze before it will be ready for prime time. Barrel Sample: 91-94 pts.

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.”
