  • Introduction

    • During the construction of the Château de Gevrey-Chambertin, the monks of Cluny would gather in the valley after a hard day of laboring the vineyards. The soils in this parcel are the same as in “Les Cazetiers” although the parcel is located slightly higher up. This truly is a remarkable terroir.
