Situated about 10 Km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the first viticultural villages in the Côte de Nuits. Planted only with Pinot Noir, here with find the hierarchy of the Burgundian appellations: to the North, the premiers crus and to the South the grand crus. The village appellations are gathered on the bottom of the slope. The sparse and pebbly limestone-rich, brown-red soils give the Gevrey-Chambertin power and body. A great Côte de Nuits classic!
