Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Wine


Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru wines are those produced under the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation, exclusively from grapes grown in Premier Cru classified vineyard sites. Gevrey-Chambertin itself is a village in the Cote de Nuits sub-region in Burgundy, and has no fewer than twenty-six Premier Cru vineyard sites (or climats).

All Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru wines are red, and made predominantly from Pinot Noir grapes. Widely regarded as being the most full-bodied and masculine of the region, the village’s wines have a particular intensity of color and rich, deep flavors which have earned Gevrey the title ‘King’ of Burgundy (the title of ‘Queen’ going to nearby Chambolle-Musigny). The distinguishing feature of these wines is their intensity, longevity and a distinctive gamey note not found in the wine of any other commune.


The Premier Cru vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin are divided reasonably neatly into two sections. The majority are located on the upper Cote d’Or slopes immediately west of the village, while a few are located around the edges of the Gevrey’s Grand Cru sites just to the south of it. The highest sites are located at an altitude of around 1200ft (365m ); some of the highest in the Cote d’Or.

The terroir here is characterized by a marginal continental climate and red, iron-rich loam soils over marlstone and limestone sub-strata. As in Pommard, which is also known for producing powerful wines from rich, reddish soils, the gamey character in Gevrey-Chambertin’s wines is attributed to the iron content of the soil.

Within the Premier Cru vineyards, there are some which are regarded more highly than others, and a couple in particular which are cited as being of Grand Cru quality. Clos Saint-Jacques and Les Cazetiers benefit from excellent viticultural conditions, and some wines from these sites command higher prices than their Grand Cru counterparts lower down. These two climats are neighbors, located immediately above the village itself. Here the slope is steep, with a sunny aspect a few points south of east, and the stony topsoils provide excellent drainage.

When the village’s vineyards were classified in the 1930’s, a key condition for Grand Cru status that the sites be adjacent to the great Chambertin Grand Cru. The result is that some lesser terroir now benefits from this superlative title, while excellent sites like the two discussed above were passed over.
