  • Introduction

    • This climat was called “Petite Merveille” (Little Wonder) in the Middle Ages, a sign of the high quality of the wines produced here. “Latricières-Chambertin” dates back to 1508 and is the most southern Grand Cru in Gevrey-Chambertin. This wine reveals an exceptional balance between minerality (reminiscent of Clos de la Roche) and depth (close in style to a Chambertin).
