Chambertin Grand Cru
Côte de Nuits
AOC Grand cru
Chambertin got its name in the 13th century. It is said that a winemaker named Bertin had planted his field with the same grape variety as his neighbour from Le Clos de Be?ze. The wines were perfect and their owner named those vines “Champ de Bertin” (Bertin’s field), which later became Chambertin. After that, this appellation, which was Napoleon’s favourite, became so renowned that the village of Gevrey became Gevrey-Chambertin.
The nose is elegant, racy and complex and develops notes of green tea, cigar, prunes, dates and rosemary. Rich, full-bodied and powerful, this wine is balanced and velvety. The finish is long and aromatic.
This wine is a great match for red meats, large game and aged full-flavoured cheeses.
