Description
  • Situated about 10 km from Dijon, Gevrey-Chambertin is one of the finest viticultural villages of the Côte de Nuits. In 1847 Gevrey-Chambertin was the first village of the Côte d'Or to join the village name with that of one of its Grand Crus - hence 'Gevrey-en-Montagne' became 'Gevrey-Chambertin. Les Corbeaux' has nothing to do with birds ('corbeau' translates literally as 'crow'). The name instead comes from the ancient french 'corbe' (curve). The vineyard of « Les Corbeaux » is influenced by the hillside of the Grands Crus and produces a powerful and complex wine.
