It is on the site of this remarkable vineyard that we find the oldest traces of the Chardonnay variety Beaune. Quite a rarity in this Pinot Noir territory. Before it was given the appellation of Clos Saint-Landry, this vineyard appeared under the name of Tiélandry, meaning the estate of a certain Landry. It then became the property of the abbey of Maizières before the purchase by Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard in 1791. Since then, Bouchard Père & Fils has preciously kept the monopoly of this white Premier Cru of 1.98 hectares.
Could the prestige of this Grand Cru be due to the work of man or the protection of the gods ? Some think that the names comes from the verb ” marer ” which meant ” cutlivate “, whilst others assert that the ” appellation ” originated in the bas-reliefs found on the site representing the mother goddesses, or “Bonnes Mères” who
protected the harvest. In 1996, Bouchard Père & Fils acquired 24 “ares” at Chambolle-Musigny and now produces a little over 1000 bottles of this wine per year.

This is the largest and most famous Grand Cru; its fame based on its history as one of Chablis’ first

The name of this appellaGon comes from Mont de Lieu which marks the border between Burgundy and
Champagne, illustrated by a marker stone dividing the two duchies which can be found on its summit.
With a double exposure moving from south to southeast facing, this terroir benefits from a higher
average temperature and more sunshine than the other Premiers Crus.
This appellation appears for the first time on an 18th century label as “Campus Bertini” from the name Bertin, a grower who is said to have planted and cultivated the land and obtained wines of the same quality as its famous neighbour, Le Clos de Bèze. Since then, this appellation, which was the favorite of Napoleon, has acquired such notoriety that the village of Gevrey has become Gevrey-Chambertin. The estate owns 15 ares and Bouchard Père & Fils produces some 700 bottles per year of this precious cru. The vines are planted on a gentle slope of red ferruginous chalk.
