One of the nine grand cru vineyards in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, producing some of the finest celebrated red wines of Côte-de-Nuits, Burgundy. Chambertin was Napoleon’s favourite wine. Eight villages are entitled to hyphenate their names with Chambertin. Alexander Dumas once said "Nothing makes the future look so rosy as to contemplate it through a glass of Chambertin". The main grape variety is Pinot Noir. It borders on Chambertin in the north, Mazoyères-Chambertin in the east (across the road), and on Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru vineyard Aux Combottes in the south. (AOC 1937).
