Listed as "Grand Cru" from the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy, this appellation is located in the small but famous village of Gevrey Chambertin.
The vineyard is located below another "Grand Cru", Chambertin, on the southernmost part of the Gevrey Chambertin appellation.
"Grand Cru’" is the highest distinction for Burgundy appellations. "Grands Cru" wines originate from the best vineyards in each area and represent just 1% of the total production of Burgundy wines.
Gevrey Chambertin counts nine ‘Grand Cru’ appellation areas. Charmes-Chambertin is widely considered to be one of the best of these and is also the largest, covering some 31 hectares.
