Griotte Chambertin Grand Cru


Côte de Nuits


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Located between Charmes et Chapelle-Chambertin, at the heart of Gevrey's Grand Crus, below the famous "Clos de Bèze", the "Griotte Chambertin" Grand Cru comprises a surface area of approximately 6.5 acres. This is the smallest of Gevrey-Chambertin's 9 Grand Crus.
Its name does not come from its aromas ("griottes" are sour cherries), but from the Burgundian term "cras", or "criot", which refer to very stony soil. Indeed, the vineyard, exposed to the east is planted on a lean soil resting on limestone slabs.


Intense nose redolent of red and black fruit and flowers (rose, peony), combined with subtle notes of spices, which will evolve over time toward more complex aromas (forest undergrowth, leather...). On the palate, this powerful, opulent wine expresses itself with utmost elegance.

Food/wine pairing

Taste this wine with finely prepared roasted or stewed meats (beef, lamb, pork, game, duck), or with medium to mature cheeses.
Recipe suggestion: beef tenderloin with a red wine reduction
