Description :

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 Bèze. 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. Our 0.17-ha plot is located at the top of the vineyard and overlies soil with a relatively high proportion of marl. This often results in later ripening than in the estate’s other plots. Consequently, it is among the last to be harvested.

Aging :

14 to 18 months in oak barrels, 70% new

Tasting Note :

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.
