Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène by The Count of Las Cases

Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest wine-producing village in the entire Côte d’Or with the wines typically deeper in colour, with more tannin structure and firmer in body than most red Burgundy. Thanks to the iron-rich clay soils the very best can develop into the richest, biggest and long-lived Pinot Noir - this of course depends on whether the vineyard is located on the steeper slopes or the flatter, richer soils.

Gevrey boasts an impressive nine Grands Crus, with the name of Chambertin retaining a regal omnipresence throughout its finest vineyard names. Chambertin-Clos de Bèze which has the right to sell its wines simply as ‘Chambertin’, and is also the only wine allowed to put the ‘Chambertin’ before (rather than after its own), is considered one of the greats. Quality-wise the next best is generally acknowledged to be Mazis-Chambertin with incredibly concentrated and fine wines, but a little less firm than Le Chambertin. The tiny Griottes-Chambertin, which owes its name to the grill-pan shape of the vineyard rather than the wine’s griotte (sour) cherry aroma, is lower down the slope and boasts a velvety texture and rich fruit reminiscent of Chambertin itself. Gevrey’s largest Grand Cru, Charmes-Chambertin is pure and seductive.

Winery DOMAINE SYLVIE ESMONIN

Domaine Sylvie Esmonin is a small wine producer in Gevrey-Chambertin. The original domaine was owned by Silvie’s father Michel and the vast majority of the wines sold in bulk. In 1990 Sylvie returned to the family domaine to help make the wines with the understanding that the wines would be bottled at the domaine. The estate has 5 ha of vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin with a sizeable parcel in the Premier Cru Clos St-Jacques. Viticulture is practiced along organic lines and vinification is relatively rapid with maturation in a high percentage of new oak. Over the years the domaine’s highly stylish elegant wines have attracted a significant international following.
