- The vineyard site is located in the north of the Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin is world-famous, not only for its superlative Grand Crus, but also for all its other vineyards.
- “Lavaux Saint-Jacques” is located at the beginning of the split of Combe de Lavaux, facing the south. “Vaux” refers to a depression in ground, a hollow, a valley, and can have different spellings.
History & tradition: Gevrey is of course the village where the Grand Cru vineyard Chambertin is located. Vines have been cultivated here since 630AD, when a certain Bertin decided to emulate the monks, his neighbors. The wine he made turned out to be spectacular – and the rest is history! The soil is lean and chalky, with a red-brown cover layer of clayey marl.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: Well-suited to great cuisine and to fine meats: grilled veal or beef would be best with a younger vintage. Fowl, white meat and stews would be ideal with an older one, since this ages extremely well.
TASTING NOTES: “Sumptuous deep color. The nose reveals aromas of small and ripe black fruits combined with leather and spice. On the palate, the wine is powerful and dense with a good tannic structure. Long aftertaste”. – Véronique Drouhin-Boss
