To the east of the famous Route des Grands Crus, we find the Chapelle-Chambertin. It owes its name to the Chapel of Notre-Dame de Bèze, built in 1155 and demolished in 1830. The Chapelle-Chambertin vineyard is shared between a dozen winemakers and occupies 20 parcels or so. This Burgundy AOC is produced in two localities: “En la Chapelle” and “Les Gémeaux”. Put together, they amount to 5.5 hectares. The Chapelle-Chambertin is one of the Grands Crus from the Gevrey-Chambertin wine area.
It's very close to its neighbor appellation, Griotte-Chambertin. Both of them sit at 260-270 meters of altitude, facing south. The soils there are rich, made of a mixture of scree, marl and limestone (which offers excellent permeability). As for the climate, it's continental, just like the entire hills of Grands Crus. The wines are made with Pinot Noir, which can produce up to 170 hectoliters on average per year (22,500 bottles in total).
