The name Gevrey, having appeared in 1219, might come from its geographical situation at the entrance to the valley or coombe of Lavaut. In Latin, « Gaba » means « gorge » or « gave » which designates a torrent rushing down a gorge.
It was completed by adding the term Chambertin, adopted from one of the grand crus of the village in 1847.
The vines face east, south-east, at 250m elevation. This Gevrey-Chambertin lies on clay-limestone soils including clayey marls. Our parcels are located at the place named « Les Seuvrées ».
Growing, vinification, ageing
Experiments with grassing-over are in progress in our parcels of Gevrey-Chambertin. From growing through to vinification, each process is balanced as a function of the vintage to create the best wines and preserve the typicity of terroir. Ageing is in oak barrels for 16 to 18 months.
A right balance of roundness, acidity and tannins. This is a generous wine of good body and its retro-olfactory fruit is exemplary. Of good length, this wine is pleasant on the finish.
Our Gevrey-Chambertin, served at a temperature of 16°C to 18°C, perfectly accompanies fattened hen, red meats and meat dishes in sauce, as well as characterful cheeses.
