The appellation

“Two” the symbol of perfect balance is the number that best sums up this parcel. La Justice is two hectares located at the bottom of the village with two distinct terroirs. The alluvial “les graviers” gives very concentrated grapes of confirmed maturity, whereas the higher part yields a lighter style wine. The stronger characteristics of La Justice make this a wine to lay down.

At the foot of the Combe de Lavaux, a cool, deep coomb cut into the hillside as if with a sickle, Gevrey-Chambertin is an enthralling overture to the Symphony of the Grands Crus. The air contains hints of all the themes played by the Pinot Noir down to Santenay, some majestic, others more subtle.

Gevrey-Chambertin, a king among wines, can only bend its knee before an emperor. Napoleon accepted this homage and remained faithful to it. The Count of Las Cases, in his Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène, noted that “For fifteen years the Emperor constantly drank the same wine, which he liked and which we believed was good for him”.

Geographic situation: Our Gevrey-Chambertin is assembled from several parcels which combine harmoniously. To the east of the village’s land lies La Justice, an ancient climat which, as wine critic Jacky Rigaux so rightly points out, lies on the centreline of the cone containing geological material which has fallen from the coomb over the millennia.
