Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the world’s most famous red-wine towns. It didn’t hurt that the Chambertin wine was Napoleon’s favorite wine. It is often called the “King of red wines”. Of the big-name towns in the Cote de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin is the most northern. It starts a stretch of some of the most famous red-wine vineyards in the world. Gevrey-Chambertin proudly boasts 9 of the red Grand Cru vineyards in Burgundy – more than any other town.

We have 3 winemakers in Gevrey-Chambertin. They all make delicious wines, but with totally different styles. One makes a fruity style, one makes a richer style with some “international” influence, and one makes very traditional/earthy Burgundian wines. Which one is better? It simply depends on your palate and what you are eating with the wine. There is no “right” choice.
