Named for the chapel which once stood among its vines, this is the most delicate and elegant of Gevery's grands crus, with silky, refined black cherry flavors offset by sweet, toasty oak in a lacy structure.
Steve Tanzer 91 points - (made from Domaine Louis Jadot’s oldest pinot vines, along with those in Clos de Beze, planted in 1920 and 1921): Bright, dark red. Precise, vibrant aromas of raspberry, cherry, stone and flowers. Wonderfully sappy and saline in the mouth, conveying a fine-grained texture and great class to the lightly salty flavors of red fruits and flowers. Perfectly integrated acidity extends the fruit on the long back end. Perfectly balanced pinot. Frederic Barnier advises drinking it ”every day for the rest of your life” but if I had a bottle or two of this elixir, I’d wait a decade.

Chapelle-Chambertin is the lightest and most feminine of Gevrey's grands crus, characterized by exceptional delicacy rather than by velvety full body. Domaine Louis Jadot is proprietor of .99 acres in this great climat, acquired in 1985 through the purchase of Domaine Clair Daü. It produces a ethereal wine with a fragrant, alluring bouquet, lacy structure and silken texture, finishing in refined, complex notes of fruit, earth and oak. (March 01, 2006)
This is a wine of delicacy and finesse, with notes of berries, earth and oak in a silken texture. This wine will improve in the bottle for 20 to 25 years.
Chapelle-Chambertin is one of the eight Grands Crus of the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin, the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. This vineyard lies on an east-facing slope. This Pinot Noir wine is fermented in vats for up to four weeks before maturing for 18 to 20 months in oak barrels.
