Wine of Charmes-Chambertin appellation
The Charmes-Chambertin AOC is a Grand Cru appellation of the Côte de Nuits in the Côte-d'Or, only produced in the commune of Gevrey-Chambertin. The Charmes-Chambertin appellation was granted Grand Cru status by decree of 31 July 1937. The Charmes-Chambertin and Chambertin Mazoyères production areas are the same, but the Charmes-Chambertin appellation is usually used. 

Gevrey-Chambertin lies alongside the Route des Grand Crus which runs from the Combes of Lavaux to Morey-Saint-Denis. This long hillside lies on hard rocks: on the upper portion are brown soils, partly alluvial, partly gravelly scree, some tens centimetres deep. Lower down are limestone soils with variable clay content. The Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru vineyards, which cover only 29 hectares, grow at between 240 and 280 metres altitude and face due east. Production of Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is only around 150,000 bottles per year. 

The Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru wines are exclusively red from the Pinot Noir. They display a lively red hue ranging from deep ruby to black-cherry. Power, opulence and elegance come together on the palate to compose a full and complex body, full of sap and voluptuous flesh, which needs at least 10 years laying down in the cellar. Although these sumptuous grands crus share the same family spirit, there are subtle differences between them. The excellence of the Charmes-Chambertin terroir is well illustrated by producers such as Domaine Chanson Père &t Fils, Domaine Philippe Charlopin-Parizot and Domaine René Bouvier.
