96The Wine Advocate

...scents of wild strawberry, raspberry, hints of wild mushroom and truffle that gain more and more intensity the longer it remains in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied but delivers a crescendo of flavors: raspberry preserve, Cepes...

95Wine Spectator

One for the cellar; has all the ingredients to age beautifully. Though tight in texture and closed in aroma now, its massive fruit flavors and near-perfect sense of balance are tip offs that it's a potentially great Burgundy.

...displaying reticent black fruit and earth notes with restrained, pure and powerful, extremely rich, almost massive flavors that offer a core of inner sweetness and then does a slow build to an intense, extremely long finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Le Chambertin

Chambertin is a 32.5 acre Grand Cru vineyard in the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. More than 25 proprietors own parcels, and some parcels are as small as about 50 square yards. The famous vineyard gets its name from a 7th century peasant, Monsieur Bertin. The name is assumed to come from the phrase “champ Bertin,” or Bertin’s field. Chambertin has an altitude that varies from 275 to 300 meters and is tucked under the Montagne de la Combe-Grisard, sheltering the site from strong winds. The soil is limestone, though there is also clay and gravel. Principal proprietors by acreage owned are Armand Rousseau, 5.38 acres; Jean and Jean-Louis Trapet, 4.75 acres; and Rossignol-Trapet, 4 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
