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.

The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are deeply colored. They have intense aromas of currants and other small red and black fruits, animal notes of musk and fur, and often a touch of licorice after some bottle aging. They are powerful, with balanced tannins, a soft mouthfeel and good acidity. These are generally robust wines.

Winery DOMAINE MAUME

Domaine Maume is a small producer based in Gevrey Chambertin. The estate has a small holding of just under 5 hectares of mature old vines located close to the village of Gevrey Chambertin with the largest single plot being 0.67 ha of Grand-Cru Mazis-Chambertin. The estate was owned by five successive generations of the Maume family up until 2011 when it was purchased by Moray Tawse. Fifth generation Bertrand Maume still makes the wines together with his colleagues from Marchand-Tawse who now assist with vinification. The hand-harvested grapes are cooled prior to fermentation and undergo a long slow cuvaison with regular punching down and pump-overs. Maturation takes place in a range of oak barrels matched specifically to each cru for up to 22 months.
