Vineyard
Griotte-Chambertin, the smallest of the Gevrey Chambertin
Grand Crus at 2.63 ha, does not take its name from a cherry
tree as the name might suggest, but rather from its shape, a
concave bowl that traps the sun so much in summer that it is
like a little grill or "grillotte". The vines are planted on a base
of compacted limestone.
Winemaking
This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged 18-20
months in oak barrels.
Vintages
After some challenging growing conditions, the 2006 harvest
landed safely. The Ban des Vendages for whites was on the
18th September, and for reds this was on the 20th – although
special dispensation was given to certain sites in the Côte de
Beaune where there was a degree of rot. Sugar levels across
both varieties were acceptable.
