Winemaker Notes

The appellation is made up of a blend of 10 parcels situated around the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, which allows an excellent, fully-rounded cuvée to be put together. It goes very well with white meats, traditional dishes such as pot au feu stew and poultry.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 91
Here too there is really lovely freshness suffusing the more deeply pitched and slightly riper nose of plum, dark cherry, earth and a whiff of the sauvage. The forward and generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors are supported by firmer and more prominent tannins on the beautifully well-layered and lengthy finish. Good stuff here and also worth checking out.

Dominique Gallois, France
In 1901, Monsieur Bizot (Dominique’s great grandfather), built a superb cellar and home in Gevrey-Chambertin. At that time, the domaine owned “parcels” of vines stretching from Gevrey all the way down to Volnay. However, multiple successions split the estate amongst several families. M. Bizot’s daughter Charlotte Gallois inherited 2.5 hectares of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin that her son, Jean Gallois, managed. In 1989 Dominique Gallois decided to market the production of bottled estate wine. The philosophy at Gallois is simple: rational control and hard work in the vines allow for the ability to do less in the cellar. The entire approach is predicated on the notion that quality comes from the place, age of the vines and that year’s climate. In the cellar the process begins by rigorously sorting the hand harvested fruit, and after a cold soak of 2-5 days, the fruit is fermented using native yeasts. Elevage takes place between 18-24 months in oak casks.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
