Chapelle-Chambertin is a classified wine-growing region and First Growth vineyard, located within the picturesque Côte de Nuits sub region of Burgundy.
The name Chambertin has been used since the 13th century and its boundaries have little changed since the Middle Ages. Once sharing imperial approval with Clos de Bèze, Napoleon’s choicest drink was from Chapelle-Chambertin. Grand Cru status was officially granted on 31 July 1937.
Chapelle-Chambertin boasts a second-to-none hill-sloped terroir, on hard rocks. On the upper portion are deep brown soils and clay-limestone soils on the lower side. The rocks are of Jurassic origin, with numerous marine fossils recalling a time when the sea miraculously covered the land.
The fine wines from Chapelle-Chambertin are known to have some of the lightest coloring of all the Gevrey-Chambertin grand crus. Wines from this AOC have excellent maturing potential within 8 to 20 years. Within this larger grand cru are two climats whose names may appear on wine labels: la Chapelle and Les Gémeaux.
A number of Gevrey-Chambertin's top producers have plots in the Chapelle-Chambertin vineyard. These include Pierre Damoy and Drouhin-Laroze, as well as the prestigious Louis Jadot.
