One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A dry red burgundy wine of high quality from Gevrey Chambertin in eastern France.
- ‘He could be extravagant in his optimism: a wine from the native Alexander grape he called equal to Chambertin.’
- ‘A Chambertin will set you back £50 or more, and even a Mercurey will be £10 - £15 a bottle.’
- ‘The top wine here is the Chambertin, made from 50-year-old vines’
- ‘His topics are always interesting, his explanations have that extreme French lucidity, and I live in hope that François will pour me some of that Chambertin 1998.’
- ‘They may not have the complex flavours of the great Côte d' Or burgundies - the magical sweet-savoury, gamey richness of the Chambertin grands crus - but they have a fruit quality and appealing suppleness all their own.’
- ‘Head to the cellar and bring up the 1998 Chambertin.’
- ‘The village was previously called just Gevrey, but in 1847 it was allowed to add Chambertin, its most famous vineyard and wine, to its name.’
- ‘However, Pinot Noir grown outside of Burgundy often tastes delicious, but it just doesn't taste much like Volnay or Chambertin.’
