Gevrey Chambertin 2016 - Bouchard Père & Fils
In the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin concentrates the
the largest number of Grand Crus, including the legendary Chambertin and
Chambertin-Clos-de-Bèze, which Napoleon loved. It is even said that the Emperor made his men salute him as he passed by these venerable vineyards. The wines of Gevrey-Chambertin, exclusively red, are highly sought after for their deep and velvety power.
