Gevrey-Chambertin

Gevrey-Chambertin

Gevrey-Chambertin is large in size, reputation and opportunities to come unstuck. It has nine grand cru vineyards (of which Chambertin is the most famous) and a further 28 premier crus, but these often fail to deliver whilst mere village appellations can exceed expectations. Premium quality, in other words, is always there to be found but from frequently unexpected corners. It is for this reason that producer, rather than appellation, is the true mark of excellence. The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin, incidentally, were Napoleon's favourite (though he habitually mixed them with water).

The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are all red and at their traditional best are powerful, long-lived and fruity in their character but with a touch of finesse. Not many wines of the world can claim that collection of attributes, but sadly the same can be said of Gevrey-Chambertin itself. Even grand crus can be lifeless and ordinary and a great deal of care, and advice, must be taken to search out the best.
