Located in the north of the Cote de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin is world-famous, not only for its superlative Grand Crus, but also for all its other vineyards. Gevrey is of course the village where the Grand Cru vineyard Chambertin is located. Vines have been cultivated here since 630AD, when a certain Bertin decided to emulate the monks, his neighbors. The soil is lean and chalky, with a red-brown cover layer of clayey marl.
The House cherishes an ideal of elegance and perfection. The "Joseph Drouhin style" marries balance, harmony, finesse and character. This combination of riches provides infinite pleasure.
The wines are recognizable for their great purity of taste. Young, they possess fruity and enticing aromas; with age, wines from great vineyards/appellations acquire a sumptuous complexity.
