Gevrey-Chambertin wine originates from the village of the same name, or the neighbouring locality of Brochon, which have identical terroirs. The original name, Les Brosselles, designated an area of scrubland, but long ago vines were planted and the name became Les Evocelles. It is Brochon’s most exceptional and best-known climat, ideally located in the edge of a coomb near the top of the slope. Its exposure and location are often compared to Les Ruchottes-Chambertin, and indeed the two wild, unpretentious climats have strong resemblances. The remains of age-old walls run down the slope, intermingled with old murgers, which are piles of stones removed from the vines over the centuries by generations of winegrowers.
