97-99The Wine Advocate

...very pure black fruit and wondrous mineralite...palate has a honeyed voluptuousness on the nose, extraordinarily concentration, cashmere tannins and an unbelievably intense finish that knocks you sideways.

95-97Stephen Tanzer

Knockout nose combines dark berries, rose petal, mint, coffee and a hint of eucalyptus. A wine of incredible density, saturating the entire palate with vibrant flavors of crushed berries, flowers, mint and iodine.

19Jancis Robinson

Smells awfully exciting and savoury. Lovely blend of richness and structure. Totally successful within his lights – very different from the casual laidbackness of Rousseau but its not overdone – just juicy, direct, attention grabbing ansd glamorous.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, 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.
