96Wine Spectator

What a sexy and exotic red Burgundy. Backward and unforgiving now, this wine is nonetheless packed with dense, ripe black cherry, plum and well-integrated oak flavors that fan out on the long finish.

19Jancis Robinson

Very subtle and rich. Fully alive. Racy and still quite youthful.

Big, rich, intense and robust aromas explode from the glass and lead to intense, full-bodied, and impressively scaled and dense flavors all wrapped in a wonderfully velvet finish.

92-95The Wine Advocate

Displaying a bright, dark color and huge aromas of Pinot fruit, smoky oak and rocks, the Chambertin has a massive, deeply spicy, sweet, very thick, super-complex palate with sauteed bacon notes.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Black cherry, licorice and caramel on the nose, plus an almost medicinal hint of iodine...Intensely flavored and very long, with harder tannins and a peppery quality.


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.
