Winemaker Notes

The wine comes from four parcels: Les Pressonniers, Les Crais, Jouise and Les Seuvrees. "En Champ" has a calcareous and clay soil. "Les Crais" is characterized by a high proportion of limestone. "Jouise" and "Murots" by a brown limestone soil, well drained, slightly exposed to the east. "Les Seuvrées", mostly calcareous soils with a good proportion of marls."

Critical Acclaim

BH 91
Burghound.com
Here the nose is decidedly earthier with notes of forest floor, humus and game adding breadth to the largely dark berry fruit-scented aromas. There is very fine volume to the rich, powerful and mouth coating flavors that terminate in a serious, youthfully austere and well-balanced finale. Despite being relatively tightly wound today there is so much sap that this could be drunk with pleasure young. Again, worth considering especially for value.
Range: 89-91

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.
