Chambertin Grand Cru


Côte de Nuits


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

The name Chambertin has been in use since the 13th century. History has it that a winegrower named Bertin panted the same variety of grapes in his field as his illustrious neighbour who owned the Clos de Bèze vineyard. The wines were perfect and the owner called his vineyard "Le Champ de Bertin" (Bertin's Field), which later became "Chambertin". Since then, this appellation, which was Napoleon's favourite, gained such fame that the village of Gevrey came to be known as Gevrey-Chambertin.


This wine expresses the exceptional character of a grand terroir combined with that of a noble grape variety. The nose is intense and classy, combining notes of red and black fruit with subtle hints of green tea, tobacco, dried fruit (prune, date) which will evolve toward more complex scents (spices, forest undergrowth, leather...) over time. Rich, full bodied and powerful on the palate, with an extremely long, velvety finish.
