It is said that Chambertin belonged to a man called Bertin and that he planted the field with the same grape variety as the monks of Bèze.
The wine he produced was perfect so the winegrowers named the field after the owner, "Champ de Bertin", hance, Chambertin.
The fruit comes from "Le Petit Chambertin" as well as from a parcelle called Larrey, planted North-south located at the edge of the wood. The shape of the plot does not favour mechanisation so the soil is tended by horse and cart.
The soil is composed of screes particularly rich in limestone. The plot is located mid-slope on entroqual limestone of lower Bajocien and Maris Bajociennes. At the top of the slope the vines are on loamy limestone of Bathonien. Gravel is uneven and the soil is less rich in phosphorous acid at the summit than at the base of the slope.
Chambertin is masculine, powerful and well constructed. It evolves perfectly with age.
It is a vigorous, firm wine with an aroma characteristicof liquorice. With a big presence in the mouth, Chambertin needs some year to fully develop.
