2011 Denis Mortet Gevrey Chambertin Les Champeaux 750mL
Country Hierarchy: Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru, Gevrey-Chambertin, Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Champeaux is the northernmost Premier Cru climat in Gevrey-Chambertin, although far from the most famous. Located at around midslope on the Cote d'Or escarpment, the vineyard is planted entirely to Pinot Noir, giving a rich, structured expression of red Burgundy.
The vineyard covers around 17 acres (7ha), rising above the flatter land at the bottom of the escarpment where the land is classified only to make simpler Gevrey-Chambertin AOCwines. The smaller Les Goulots and Combe au Moine vineyards separate Champeaux's boundaries from the treeline above.
