An indepth look at the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin

 

If you didn't make it to our Vosne-Romanee Lunch on 3 March you missed the opportunity to not only enjoy some delicious wines but gain a wonderful insight into the vineyards, vintages and makers of this commune.
The event proved popular and so interesting that we are going to do the same for Gevrey-Chambertin.
The dinner will feature 12 wines split into three brackets of 4. The first bracket looks at Gevrey lieux-dits. Three of these wines come from the top end of the commune where the best Villages wines lie. However, the last one, Les Seuvrees, is the black sheep. It is a fine vineyard but lies at the very south and on the wrong side of the RN74.
Bracket 2 comprises 4 Premier Crus from 2016. They are well spread from north to south. One of the exercises much enjoyed at the Vosne lunch was comparing like wines and have the 1er Cru Champonnet from two makers.
The third bracket features four 1er Crus from 2015. Here we go from top to bottom - les Combottes is the most southerly 1er Cru right on the Morey border. Once again we have a matching pair - this time Les Cazetiers, once of Gevrey's best.
The wines will be accompanied by a 4-course meal at one of our favourite restaurants - Noir - in Richmond. The Restaurant has One Hat in the Good Food Guide and chef Peter Roddy consistently turns out great food. Click here to visit Noir's website.
This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Gevrey-Chambertin - it one of the most loved communes in Burgundy. The village is based on a Roman settlement and grapes have been grown here for two millennium. In 2009 a vineyard thought to date back to the first century AD was discovered in Gevrey-Chambertin.

 

The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin are known for their structure and power. But when it comes ot the premier crus there are two distinct groups that have their own character.

 

The dinner will feature 12 wines split into three brackets of 4. The first bracket looks at Gevrey lieux-dits. Three of these wines come from the top end of the commune where the best Villages wines lie. However, the last one, Les Seuvrees, is the black sheep. It is a fine vineyard but lies at the very south and on the wrong side of the RN74.


Bracket 2 comprises 4 Premier Crus from 2016. They are well spread around the village of Gevrey itself. One of the exercises we always enjoy is comparing like wines and have the 1er Cru Champonnet from two makers.


The third bracket features four 1er Crus from 2015. Here we go from south to north - Les Combottes is the most southerly 1er Cru right on the Morey border. Once again we have a matching pair - this time Les Cazetiers, once of Gevrey's best.

 

This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin and enjoy some glorious wines from 2016 and 2015.
