This most famous of the Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Crus became a key part of the Jadot range in 1985 with the Clair-Daü acquisition. Jadot is one of only 5 owners within this vineyard, which is perfectly exposed to the southeast. Considered to be on the level of nearby Grand Crus, this site for historical reasons remains a highly sought Premier Cru.

2021 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2021 vintage was memorable for the extreme challenges it posed to growers. The defining event was a hard freeze in April which lasted several days, and the subsequent dramatic reduction in harvest volumes. Added to this were cool and wet summer conditions which required constant vigilance. The delayed harvest eventually yielded tiny volumes of pristine grapes which express a vibrant and energetic purity.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of ripe cherry, wet stones and sandalwood are inviting while the texture of dense tannins and bright acidity prolong the expansive texture on the palate. While already full-bodied, with time this wine gains richness, elegance and complexity.
Food Pairing
An ideal match for complex and earthy cuisines, all roast meats as well as mature salty cheeses.
