There are several possible explanations regarding the origin of the name Gevrey: is it derived from the Gallic "Gibriacus" or from the combe de Lavaut, "Gaba" in Latin meaning "gorge".
The name "Gevrey” first appeared in 1219.

Our Gevrey-Chambertin is matured in oak barrels previously used for one wine made from wood from the Allier and Nivernais regions, with medium to medium-plus toasts.
With a fine colour and visual aspect and good texture, on the palate the Gevrey-Chambertin leaves a sensation of freshness with a delicate body and slight woody hints. Its tannins are melted in a tender and silky texture that highlight its aromatic refinement and subtlety.
Serving temperature: between 16° and 18°C
Matching food: the Gevrey-Chambertin can be enjoyed with Burgundy "en meurette" dishes, a leg of mutton, boeuf bourguignon or game terrines.
