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 - More rustic in style, with coarse tannins asserting themselves over cherry, menthol and earth notes. Yet not overly dry on the finish, suggesting that this just needs time to integrate. Best from 2009 through 2016. 110 cases made. –BS

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.
