Chambertin Grand Cru

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.
