Description

The illustrious wines of Gevrey-Chambertin undoubtedlly comprise all the virtues that constitute a great terroir. Flowing from the typicity of its superior vineyards, the wine produced here shows such a remarkable diversity of expression that it has become a natural advocate for the cause of terroirs - particularly in a global context where some would like to impose reductionist and profitable forms of technology.This new edition will lead you to discover how the Gauls, followed by the Gallo-Romans, the Burgundians and the winegrowing monks, created the contours of this fascinating mosaic of climats around Gevrey-Chambertin. Familiarize yourself with the characteristics of the terroir of Gevrey-Chambertin and immerse yourself in an intimate knowledge of the numerous named locations and their own unique wines.


With its 600 hectares, Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest village-named appellation of the Côte-de-Nuits, with the most Grands Crus (9 in total), endowed with 27 Premiers Crus, the most famous of which is CLOS SAINT JACQUES, and also containing the most notable of Burgundy growths, the famous CLOS DE BÈZE.
Maps drawn by François Vannier and Emmanuel Chevigny, and geographical cross-sections done by Michel Campy complete the author's texts and make this work a precious guide. The photos taken by Christian Bon are an invitation to discover or to gain a more intimate knowledge of the lovely vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin !
