Tiny Yet Respected Across Burgundy
Chambertin appellation is one of the 9 Grands Crus of the Côte de Nuits. This AOC Grand Cru vineyards for red wine are in the Côte de Nuits Burgundy sub-region, East of France. The appellation is occupying 0.13 square kilometers of a sloping hillside that enjoys a perfect exposure with approximately 79,000 liters of wine production per year.
Chic Red Wines
The pinot noir vines, located on a small layer of earth, find in this soil ideal conditions for elaborating the most elegant red wines, especially on the white and marly soils of the upper part of the hillside. The exclusively brown limestone soils of the middle and lower slopes, also covered with marl, produce more powerful and complex wines.
Tasted All Across the World
The continental climate of this appellation is sometimes tempered by cold winds coming from the reliefs. The color of these Grands Crus is dark and deep, from dark ruby to black cherry. There is a complex blend of aromas of red berries, black currants, licorice or spices, flowers, moss, and undergrowth. Massive and delicate simultaneously, they are opulent and elegant on the palate and are long in the finish. If it is possible to discover their personality when they are young, they are undeniably wines of outstanding care. Always famous, the Chambertin AOC wines were already present in the royal cellars of Versailles, even tasted in the White House by Thomas Jefferson. Chambertin appellation was created in 1937.
