Chambertin Grand Cru
Once upon a time, this field was owned by a fellow called Bertin. This is the most famous Grands Crus, close to the south of Combe Grisard ; it is not as steep as Clos de Bèze and colder. Facing east, it benefits from perfect sunshine. At the top of the hill, the soils are white and marly, thereby slowing down the growing cycle. At the bottom, they are marly-limestone with superb dark brown clay. Together they are covered by scree and fine silt. Situated on the middle of the slope with excellent drainage, this is a perfect terroir for Pinot Noir.
The combination between the top and the bottom produces a Chambertin offering rare balance.
Like all great wines, it remains very closed in its youth. However when first tasted it evokes its full potential and plenty of class on the palate. From start to finish it boasts good elegant flesh with silky tannins and a mineral framework. With age it will express its entire complexity.
