...trades on elegance and purity of expression with just a bit more of everything... ...Very fresh and bright red pinot fruit aromas... ...sweet, mineral-infused, crisp and beautifully delineated full-bodied flavors...

90Stephen Tanzer

Vibrant nose combines raspberry, cassis and violet. Superrich and ripe, with cassis, violet and chocolate flavors. There's something almost cabernet-like about this very impressive village wine.


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

Griotte-Chambertin, sometimes spelled Griottes-Chambertin, is in Robert M. Parker Jr.’s words “a miniscule jewel of a vineyard” at just 6.7 acres. It is located across the road from Clos de Beze and produces only 800 cases of wine a year. The soil is extremely thin but the vineyard has excellent drainage, and wine writers all seem to agree that wines from Griotte-Chambertin are outstanding. Clive Coates writes that “Griotte has a poise and individuality that raises it above all but the very best Charmes.” Principal landholders are Ponsot/Domaine des Chezeaux, 2.23 acres; Rene Leclerc/Domaine des Chezeaux, 1.88 acres; and Joseph Drouhin, 1.33 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.
