Gevrey-Chambertin Village
Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée

Gevrey-Chambertin Village AOC

Character of the wine

Gevrey-Chambertin wines are deep in colour with fine expressive aromas. When young they suggest blackcurrants and other red or black soft fruits, with hints of liquorice heightened by their being partially matured in new oak casks. As the wines age they acquire further aromas suggestive of animal pelts, musk, spicy vanilla and Havana cigars. Rich, fine and full-bodied they have a robust, well-balanced structure. These wines, with their resounding name, are famed for their bouquet and finesse; they are known to have been Napoleon's favourite wine, which he took with him on his campaigns.
