The Gevrey-Chambertin appellation covers more than 400 hectares in the Brochon and Gevrey-Chambertin communes. The 26 Gevrey-Chambertin climats have Premier Cru classification. The vines are located on an escarpment. The Premiers Crus on the top are grown in calcareous brown soils, and the vines near the Gevrey-Chambertin Village are grown in limestone, scree, red silt, marl and clay soils. The red Pinot Noir wines from the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation have a lovely color ranging from bright ruby to garnet. They give off fruity and floral aromas in their youth and evolve into spicy, animal and vegetable notes as they age. These wines have power, richness and a beautiful structure. They can be consumed in their youth for their fruit or they can be cellared for a long period of time.
