...big, rich, intense and mouth coating flavors that have really beautiful depth, power and length. This is not a particularly structured wine but the sheer complexity and class combine to create a simply knock out Chambertin,..

93+ Stephen Tanzer

Cool, reserved, extremely pure aromas of wild berries, gunflint, coffee and minerals. Dense and penetrating, with a tight core of liqueur-like cherry and small red berries....a wine of great class.

18.5Jancis Robinson

Quite dark crimson – very healthy looking. Quite intense and like jewelly cough medicine. Hint of violets. Round and deep crimson. Some sweetness and then lots of sinew. Mushrooms and gentleness. Really rich.

90-93The Wine Advocate

It has super-ripe, talcum, and blackberry aromas that lead to a medium to full-bodied wine of outstanding depth. Loads of oak-laced black fruits can be found throughout its zesty, firm character.


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.
