Presentation :

A vineyard of excellence, Gevrey-Chambertin is undoubtedly the one that brings together all the virtues that make up great terroirs. The diversity of expression pushed to its height, revealed in the typicity of its wines, makes it the ambassador of the current discourse which claims the cause of terroirs, in these times when we would like to impose on us imperatives of simplifying technology and profitability. Discover in this new edition how the Gauls, Gallo-Romans, Burgundians and monk-winemakers drew, thanks to the work of the winegrowers of Gevrey-Chambertin, the contours of this mosaic of "climates".

Familiarize yourself with the characteristics of the Gevrey-Chambertin terroir and soak up the knowledge of these numerous localities, each wine of which is unique. With its 600 hectares, Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest finage on the Côte, the most successful with its 9 Grands Crus and 27 Premiers Crus, the most famous of which is Clos Saint Jacques, this is where the dean of Burgundy wines, the famous Clos de Bèze.

Complementing the author's texts, the maps drawn up by Françoise Vannier and Emmanuel Chevigny and the geographical sections by Michel Campy make it a valuable guide. As a prelude to a visit, Christian Bon's photographs are an invitation to discover or get to know the beautiful Gevrey-Chambertin vineyard better!
