One of the eight Grands Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin, the Le Chambertin
vineyard has surface clay with limestone beneath, which makes the wine round and
powerful. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to one month, and
then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months before bottling.
