Gevrey-Chambertin is a powerhouse. It not only has the most Grands Crus of all communes in Burgundy, but also the largest red Premier Cru production. It also has, as you might be guessing, a lot of cross-over in terms of naming (ex. Charmes-Chambertin can be Mazoyères-Chambertin). Gevrey’s wines tend to be deep in color, rich in flavor and sturdy with tannin.
